So great and vast was the singer-songwriter revolution of the 1960s that we take for granted the long, steadily productive careers of many of its practitioners. That is the case with Chris Smither, who has put out 16 studio-recorded albums since 1970’s I’m a Stranger Too!

Steep Canyon Rangers have risen to the top of the Bluegrass world slowly but surely. Formed while college students in North Carolina (and now based near Asheville, N.C.), the group represents the younger guard in Bluegrass music, a band that is fluent in the traditional side of the genre yet open-minded and contemporary in their approach.

If there’s a commemorative tablet somewhere inscribed with the names of the most unlikely people to be drawn into the Grateful Dead’s musical universe, Jackie Greene should be chiseled on it along with Pop/Jazz pianist Bruce Hornsby and former Tubes keyboardist Vince Welnick.

Rodney Crowell’s visit to Cincinnati this week might seem to be just a routine return of an “old hand” Roots-music singer/songwriter — his first solo album, Ain’t Living Long Like This, was released in 1978. But there are some dramatic new developments in Crowell’s long career.

The War on Drugs with White Laces

Friday • 20th Century Theater

The cover for The War on Drugs’ latest album, Lost in the Dream, finds frontman Adam Granduciel looking down pensively, his fuzzy, mop-headed silhouette semi-obscured by light flowing through a window. The gauzy image is the perfect encapsulation of the Philadelphia band’s brand of melancholic Psych Pop, a sound at once familiar and tough to entirely pin down.
