WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

The Beard Whisperers

Six years in, the Whispering Beard Folk Festival takes a grassroots approach to down-home music

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 2, 2013
 For fans (known affectionately as Beardos), WBFF has grown well beyond its original local-showcase format and become a regional/national talent draw. This year’s headliners include former Drive-By Truckers guitarist Jason Isbell and Trampled by Turtles side project Dead Man Winter, impressive names on any marquee.   

Slaid Cleaves

June 26 • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Tuesday, June 25, 2013
When it comes to the struggles of the wandering troubadour, Slaid Cleaves knows the perils of that life from top to bottom. He's sung on the street for his supper in Ireland and Boston, played in Punk and Roots Rock bands for little or no return and fixed his own van on the road.   

Dan Tedesco

June 21 • Southgate House Revival

Whether he's banging away on an acoustic or spinning sinewy sounds on guitar or keyboards with the assistance of a nearby outlet and an appropriately volumed amp, Dan Tedesco writes and plays with the heart-sleeved sensitivity of the best Folk troubadours.    

The Lumineers with Cold War Kids

June 4 • Riverbend

0 Comments · Tuesday, May 28, 2013
The Lumineers’ upward trajectory began in early 2011, when they secured management after posting a YouTube video of a performance of their future hit single, “Ho Hey.”    

Danny Schmidt

May 19 • Southgate House Revival

Schmidt's poetic and melodic gifts have earned him glowing comparisons to Dylan and Leonard Cohen, his keen sense of humor has been measured against Prine and Steve Goodman and his haunting songcraft, as well as his roots, have aligned him with Townes Van Zandt.   

Billy Bragg

April 30 • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Billy Bragg has been proffering his brand of topical Folk Rock for more than 30 years now. Curiously, Bragg’s first album in five years, Tooth & Nail, is a wistful, less politically inclined affair anchored by the tasteful production work of Joe Henry.   

Akron/Family

April 17 • MOTR Pub

Everything Akron/Family does is patently fascinating, wildly evocative and compellingly mysterious. The Brooklyn, N.Y., collective assembled more than a decade ago and quickly became a central element of the Williamsburg scene.   

Richard Thompson Electric Trio

April 11 • 20th Century Theater

If there is a buzz on the concert circuit this spring, part of it centers on the shows currently being performed by Richard Thompson. The London, U.K.-born musician is a legend in many eyes, with Rolling Stone magazine listing Thompson as one of the “Top 20 Guitarists of All Time.”  

Jeremiah and the Red Eyes

March 21 • Southgate House Revival (Lounge)

Need some Christmas woe in your springtime? If so, catch up with Home, the third (as far as we can tell) record by the Los Angeles-based Jeremiah Sammartano and his Delta Blues/Folk/Alt-Country outfit The Red Eyes.
