"I'll be there for fourth year in a row for Friday and Saturday.  Although there is not quite as much diversity of Americana styles this year, the line-up is still wonderful.  I'm looking forward to seeing Old Crow Medicine…"

MerleFest - Wilkesboro, North Carolina - April 24-27 2014

While there are quite a few notable festivals that begin earlier than late April, many of us kick off the festival season by trekking to not your normal community college, the Wilkes Community College in the rolling hills of north central North Carolina where MerleFest has been held every year since 1988. Named in honor of Merle Watson who lived nearby, 2014 marks the second festival since Merle's father, Doc Watson, passed away. And as sorely his…

Bob Dylan in the 1980s, a Tribute, Sort Of: Stream The New Album of Covers

Stream the album   (Courtesy of the Wall Street Journal, ATO Records & Soundcloud)

The 1980s is generally considered to be Dylan's lost decade, when many die hard fans lost faith, and is now in the midst of a revisionist revival. Coming just a week or so after the re-release of the 30th Anniversary Madison Square Garden extravaganza that…

Emmylou Harris to Re-Issue Deluxe Edition of "Wrecking Ball" on April 8, 2014

It looks as though 2014 will be a year of significant Americana re-issues. On the heels of Lucinda Williams' re-release of her Rough Trade album, Emmylou Harris and Daniel Lanois will re-issue one of our cornerstones, "Wrecking Ball" on April 8.

While it has never been out of print since its release in 1996, Nonesuch is giving it the premium treatment. Not only will the original album be remastered (what was wrong with the first one?), but a second disc containing alternate…

Lucinda Williams-The 25th Anniversary Reissue

"When Lucinda-Cindy, then-was six years old she was putting words together on paper. For a first-grade project she wrote a poem and surrounded it by delightful multicolored designs. The teacher didn’t know where to put it, the only two categories to that point being collections and crafts, so it was placed in a table by itself between two long tables loaded with birds’ nests and bird houses. All these years later, the world still doesn’t quite know what table Lucinda’s work belongs…

Ten (or Eleven) Overlooked Albums of 2013

My post on picks for essential albums of the year was completed on the same day as the blogger compilation list was featured and a quick scrolling noted that there were many worthwhile recordings that were absent from all our lists.  And many substantial 2013 releases, such as Kim Richey and my own Patty Griffin's Silver Bell and the Motel Mirrors, were included only on a single list. 

So, to give some space and credit to…

I try to be in contact with you. It's about the Michael Hurley's photo you took.
I organise an event in Nantes (France) where Michael  will play and I wish to use this photo as visual for the promotional book we will edit. Is it possible ?
Thanks in advance,
Kind regards,

Hi Amos


      As a featured contributor to No Depression, I’m particularly keen on getting your feedback for the following – Please forgive the intrusion if you don’t have the time or inclination to reply.


      I’ve posted the following to the No Depression discussion board – you can either respond there or alternatively drop me a line at


Thanks very much for your time

Kind regards,





My name is Steve Hatch and I’m currently conducting research for my Master’s in Songwriting at Bath Spa University in Bath, England (though I happen to be an ex-pat Georgia boy).  I would be extremely grateful if you could find the time to listen to the track (link below) and answer the 2 accompanying questions.  The more detail, the better of course (more to say in my final analysis) – but all feedback will be useful and very much appreciated.


Sadly, as this is an academic pursuit, there is a deadline.  Please reply by May 20th if at all possible so that I can have time to chew over your response and include it in my final write-up.


            The track:


1)     Which artist/band(s) would you say the track is most similar to and why?


2)     Which genre(s) would you say the track belongs to and why?

I haven't seen him play live since the early 90's but I always enjoyed his performances.
