This is the Podcast of ex-Long Ryder and now Coal Porters Sid Griffin
Sid Griffin displays many chapeaux in his career as a multi-faceted musician, proud author, knowledgeable broadcaster and professional golfer. Or is that professional go-fer? Okay, only the first three hats get anywhere near his noggin, but they all fit snugly. He is also a proud parent and part time journalist as well as a man who makes excellent cheese mushroom omelettes.
An eighth-generation native Kentuckian (on both sides) who currently resides in England, Sid has popped up in literary circles due to the success of his Million Dollar Bash book on Bob Dylan’s Basement Tapes as well as the follow up Shelter From The Storm. He has also appeared in music circles due to his bluegrass band the Coal Porters enjoying success after success and to his many media appearances, be they via ink or the airwaves. Griffin has already won a Lifetime Achievement Award in Italy in 2003 (true!), and Sid’s old band the Long Ryders, the legendary founders of alt-country, have reformed in 2004, 2009, 2014 and twice in 2016 but they have no new studio material since 1986. However in 2017 the band hope to record some new songs for a new album!
The Coal Porters, Sid’s new band, continue to perform live and release albums via Prima Records with their latest being 2016’s No. 6, their well-received sixth studio album.
Prima released Sid’s first solo album in a decade (!), The Trick Is To Breathe, in September 2014. Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, it was Sid’s first time recording in an American studio since he moved to Europe in 1992.
