Jim White Vs. The Packway Handle Band On World Cafe

Jim White vs. The Packway Handle Band.
Jim White vs. The Packway Handle Band.

Jim White, the Southern-born filmmaker turned singer-songwriter turned novelist, has a new album — or at least half of one. Jim now lives in Athens, Ga., where he's become friends with a longtime local bluegrass group, The Packway Handle Band. When they asked him to produce their album, he said yes, but only if he could join the band and have them do some of his tunes. That's where the name of this project, Jim White vs. The Packway Handle Band, comes from. The musical result — an album titled Take It Like A Man — is good and the witty White is always fun to engage in conversation.
