Traveling, creating, and sharing original live music are a few essential ingredients for the enrichment of humanity. Norman Baker plays homage to this fact by introducing new and old songs to as many communities as possible. His new album utilizes undertones of pedal steel,mandolin, banjo, upright bass, clarinet, and of course an onslaught of acoustic and electric guitars telling stories of loss, loss prevention, camping, driving without cell phones, childlike innocence, home towns, and walking till your shoes wear through. When not traveling and playing with his full band, Norman Baker & The Backroads, he’s traveling and playing solo acoustic in far off amazing places such as The Sou’Wester, where he’s been visiting with his family since he was a child.
