    Musicians rediscovering power of protest songs

    By Matt Miller HeyReverb.com A month after a white man walked into a black Charleston, S.C., church and killed nine people and wounded one other, Rhiannon Giddens released “Cry No More.” It’s a one-take video. The only instrumentation is Giddens solemnly banging a hand drum. A single camera circles Giddens in a church as she sings, “You have to help us fight it, but together we’ll be whole.” A casually dressed choir responds with “We can cry no more.” The […]

    By Chris Riemenschneider Minneapolis Star Tribune EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — As he roamed the backstage area at the Eaux Claires Music & Art Festival last month, Kristian Matsson seemed to be right at home despite being 4,000 miles away from home. “There’s definitely a Scandinavian vibe here,” said the Swedish folk-rock singer better known by his stage moniker the Tallest Man on Earth. “The people here are warm and humble — too humble, really.” Actually just 5-foot-7 in stature, the […]

    NedFest expects big turnout for Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Hard Working Americans

    By Quentin Young In 2011, a Friday night set during NedFest by jamband-scene noblemen Bill Kreutzmann, George Porter Jr., Steve Kimock and Kyle Hollingsworth came close to drawing a capacity crowd.

    Spotlight is shining on Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats

    By Matt Miller HeyReverb.com NEW YORK — Nathaniel Rateliff stands at the center of a small crowd at a bar in the East Village. He’s staring at the only TV, tucked into the corner, and he’s hoping he didn’t screw up; he’s hoping none of his bandmates screwed up. The bar is called the hi-fi, and roughly 1,600 miles away, a Baker Neighborhood crowd is also glued to a TV in Denver’s hi-dive. From halfway across a continent, they’re collectively […]

    Yonder Mountain String Band excited about Red Rocks show, new album

    By Quentin Young About 40 minutes before Yonder Mountain String Band took the stage at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in June, the band made a snap decision to scrap the setlist they had written. They had planned to throw in a number of songs from the old days of their original, quartet lineup. But at the last minute they decided to go with the confidence they had in their new album, Black Sheep, which they released that very day. “We […]
