By the Time You Read This, It'll Be Over: A Pre-Newport Ramble

Missing the first night -- likely the best of the three, given my taste and interest -- is sort of a bummer. But, on the other hand there's still two more days and nights to wander around the festival site, to hopefully discover a new act or the reinvention of something old. And, to be completely honest, the music and performances will run second to just being there.

This will be my first trip to the Newport Folk Festival and, if you believe in ghosts like I do, brushing up…

Danny Petroni & Frank Lacy - The Blue Project (Album Review)

Guitarist Danny Petroni teamed up with Frank Lacy to create a modern blues, jazz, and soul band that he bills as the “Sound of Asbury Park.” The result is the self-titled release The Blue Project

The album is a collection of hymns about the common man's struggle and inner city view of modern life, mixed with good, old-time, horsing-around fun. Vocalist and trombone…

Instrumentally Speaking...Woodstock Gets Hungry for Music

In 1992, while he was enrolled at George Washington University, Jeff Campbell had an idea that initially was inspired by a class project. The concept was to bring street musicians and other D.C. music talent together for a concert called Hungry for Music, that would benefit the Coalition Against Homelessness.

These concerts were held in 1992 and 1993, and included a food drive. Two…

The Jayhawks at Shepherd’s Bush Empire (London, U.K. - July 18, 2014)

The trilogy includes bonus tracks, alternative versions, demos, live takes, new liner notes and unreleased material from the band’s extensive collection of archives.

Selwyn Birchwood in Durham Central Park (Durham, N.C. - July 18, 2014)

If you go to a Selwyn Birchwood show, the dance floor should be packed with enthusiastic hoofers. If not, the young Florida-based guitarist has a back-up plan: To ensure that there's at least one dancer gyrating to the beat, a mummified muppet voodoo doll dangles by his neck in front of the kick drum, hinged limbs jerking with every thump, paying silent homage to the exuberant, vibrant Birchwood blues soundtrack.

Friday night's show at Durham, N.C.' s Central Park had few…
