There’s a very thin line between knowing
what you want and being thankful for what you have. A few inches to one
side could see you constantly unhappy with what you earn. An inch on the
other side and you’re bound to never earn anything new. Cincinnati’s on-the-rise Indie Folk duo
Young Heirlooms walk that line. They’re overwhelmingly thankful for the
support from Cincinnati and respect from their fans. Their gratefulness
is conveyed nearly constantly, onstage and off. But, just under the surface, they’re itching for more.
The biannual Clifton Heights Music Festival returns this weekend for its fourth edition, taking over seven venues around the University of Cincinnati for two days of diverse, quality local music. Launched a year and half ago, the fest has become the best all-local musical showcase in town, growing from 35 acts to this year’s 80-plus.
