As I've said before, I'm from Santa Fe where it's not what you know. It's not even who you know. it's who you're related to.
So indulge me in devoting a little blog space to a real cool project my brother, Jack Clift, did with John Carter Cash (son of Johnny & June.) Pale Imperfect Diamond by The Cedar Hill Refugees is a fusion of music from Uzbekistan -- specifically Jack's Uzbek band Jadoo -- and country music from the American south. Performing on the album are greats like Ralph Stanley, Marty Stuart, John Cowan, The Peasall Sisters and more. Here's a video about the project:

Meanwhile, my son Anton and his band OuttaGear, which grew up in my garage, just recorded a bunch of original songs. You can find three of them HERE.
