In the Magic Hour
Whether Aoife O'Donovan has made the decision to leave her day job with Crooked Still remains to be seen, but based on the results of her second solo album, "In The Magic Hour," she'd clearly fare just fine if she opted to pursue her own career full time. It's not like she hasn't spread her wings far afield already; in recent years she's loaned her talents to a diverse array of musicians that includes Ollabelle, Jerry Douglas, Jim Lauderdale, Darol Anger, Sarah »»»

Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
