Besides having one of the, if not THE best name in the history of the world, Gurf Morlix is probably one of the most prolific and celebrated musician/instrumentalist/producer/songwriters you’ve never heard of.  Shame on you!  This week’s Tasty Brew celebrates the genius that is Gurf and his many friends and compadres like Lucinda Williams, Robert Earl Keen, Mary Gauthier, Ian McLagan, Ray Wylie HubbardSlaid Cleaves and Grant Peeples. The instruments that he plays include guitar, bass, mandolin, mandocello, dobro, pedal steel, Weissenborn, banjo, harmonica, and drums. Gurf is a member of the Austin Music Awards Hall of Fame (2004) and the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame (2005), and was the Americana Music Association Instrumentalist of the Year for 2009.  And oh yes, we will finally hear Brewhead Don’s request “It’s My Time” by John D. Loudermilk.
