MerleFest 2014 Wrap-Up: Highlights from this year's festival

It's been twenty-six years since the late, great Doc Watson decided to throw a festival near his home in Deep Gap, NC, to honor the memory of his son Merle. The younger Watson died three years earlier in a tractor accident on the family farm but, before that, had been one of the most dexterous and influential guitar pickers of his generation. To honor him, Doc titled his festival Merlefest, and invited some of the finest bluegrass, folk, and old time players around. Since then, just about…See More

Hear It First at Folk Alley - Cahalen Morrison & Eli West

by Kim Ruehl, for FolkAlley.com

Traditional old time, folk, and country-western music isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to most people’s minds when they think of Seattle. When the Emerald City gets respect for its rootsy music, it’s usually from critics praising the acoustic spirit of bands like Fleet Foxes and the Head and the Heart. But, the truth is that Seattle’s relationship with old timey music and trad country goes back far…

HEAR IT FIRST: Poor Old Shine - 'Poor Old Shine'

**audio for this Hear It First feature is no longer available.**

By now, it's almost a cliché that New England is a hotbed of great, outside-the-box roots music.
