Ok it's not all local but some of the music I've been enjoying lately includes....
Jason Isbell - Southeastern
Foy Vance - Joy of Nothing
Turin Brakes - We Were Here
Tired Pony - Ghost of the Mountain
The Farriers - Years Ago In Our Back Yard
Sons of Caliber - The Tundra
Dustin Kensrue - The Water & the Blood
All worth investigating!!
