The inaugural Westport Roots Fest, centered around the Westport Saloon and taking place on Saturday, May 24, is approaching fast. To prepare for the pending roots romp presented by the good folks at Little Class RecordsThe Pitch will be highlighting a "song of the day" from one of the featured artists in the weeks leading up to fest. 

Kris Bruders has been working in roots music longer than he can remember. Well, actually, that's not entirely true - some years ago, Bruders found himself diving into an instrument called the bouzouki (a sort of cross between a banjo and a mandolin) at a ZoukFest in New Mexico. While the bouzouki is far from the dominant sound in Bruders' blues band Cadillac Flambé, elements of that intricate picking style still crop up in songs. Aided by his wife Havilah on harmony, Bruders has transformed Cadillac Flambé into a mash-up of soul-rattling rhythms, hard-knocked beats and gloriously down-home Americana. The band's new album will be released on LIttle Class Records on Saturday, May 24.
