Share the Covers
Any band can offer up an album of covers. That's a given and a no-brainer at that. For some outfits, it merely means they're in a holding pattern, offering up a stopgap effort prior to regaining their muse and moving forward with new momentum.
North Carolina's Chatham County Line provide an exception to that axiom as proven with "Sharing the Covers," a set of songs that effectively puts a new perspective on various well known standards. A blazing rendition of »»»
For a couple of decades now, the "bluegrass" genre has expanded to include a multitude of bands which, while paying at least lip service to the traditions of Monroe, the Stanleys, Lester and Earl and the rest of the founding fathers, have moved away from the cabins on the hill and the girls left behind to produce a contemporary brand of bluegrass that is richly textured, more nuanced, and produced with instrumentation, sensibilities - and technology - that set it apart from the »»»

Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home
Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why.
Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
