High 48s Side Project Alert

A few months ago, we posted about Anthony Ihrig’s fantastic solo CD Missing Ghosts. Now we have another High 48s-related CD release to talk about. Eric Christopher’s countrypolitan collaboration with the amazing Dana Thompson, The Minor Planets, has just released a new CD called Shadow in the Water and will be celebrating its release at the Aster Cafe this Saturday (January 21st) at 9pm.

Check out the CD and download a free track here.

The Minor Planets (aka Dana Thompson and Eric Christopher) also made an appearance on MPR’s Radio Heartland this week and talked to Mike Pengra and Chris Roberts about the CD…and of course played a few numbers live in beautiful-sounding Studio M. The show will air again Friday (January 20) at noon, or you can listen online anytime by following this link:

Also, expect a new CD from the 48s (our first with Marty Marrone) within the next couple months — stay tuned!
