Red Dirt Skinners in the Roots & Fusion studio

11 February 2015 by Pure Radio

Husband & wife duo, the Red Dirt Skinners came into the Roots & Fusion studio to record a session.

Described by some as “genre-defying”, the combination of guitar & saxophone is gorgeously complimented by lovely harmony vocals.

They recorded four originals and a wonderful version of a Bowie song, before having a chat with Rick in the studio.

1) Up All Night
2) Lay Me Down
3) Idabel Blues
4) Space Oddity
5) Stillwater
