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. 

Jim Eaton isn't doing anything particularly new with his band Outlaw Jim & the Whiskey Benders. The songs fall somewhere after the tradition of classic country and hover just on the edge of modern radio country - thankfully, Eaton and crew refrain from the common trappings of the genre. In "Rollin' a Seven," you can hear all of what Eaton and his Benders do well: New Orleans jazz hall piano, southern-fired electric guitar, and Eaton's own round, comfortable voice. This man could sing the phonebook and make it sound like an old classic.
