Up the River 

An outdoorsman writes an album about stuff he knows.

Take a listen to Steve Madewell's new CD, Rivers and Trails, and his day job as deputy director for the Lake Metroparks system comes through. The disc pays homage to the great outdoors, with songs like the fly-fishing ode "Spawn Till You Die" and "The Stillwater Rag," which is about a river near Madewell's boyhood home outside Dayton. "It's a tribute to hiking, canoeing, and girls," he says. "Every kid needs a river like that."

Fellow folkie and friend Alex Bevan is a fan. After he heard the album, he was ready to grab a pole and head to the nearest fishing hole. "It makes me want to dust off my waders and see what I've been missing," says Bevan.
