Here's Johnny Winter performing a truly rocking version of Bob Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited" on October 16, 1992. That's the day a slew of respected artists -- from George Harrison to Johnny Cash to Neil Young -- got together at New York City's…

Robyn Ludwick – Little Rain (Album Review)

And the lines can break my heart And the pain can do me in And just when I gain control The darkness brings you back againIn Little Rain, Robyn Ludwick sings for those times when love's longing lengthens the afternoon shadows, stretching them past the point of no return. The working day is over, there's nowhere to hide from what's missing in your life. You go ahead and open that second bottle of wine. Hell, the one you started on was already open, wasn't it? And only half full, you're pretty…See More

America, Bluegrass, and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival

Saturday night at Telluride, Sam Bush opened his two-hour set with an instrumental version of "The Star-Spangled Banner." There was a flag in the audience -- it had been there all weekend -- popping up every now and then. I'm not sure if Bush had planned the National Anthem or not, but when the crowd caught on, you could see some hats off, hands over hearts here and there, and folks with their eyes on Old Glory. Close to us, people were singing. The whole thing was just about as patriotic as it…See More

Telluride Without Jeff Austin

The news came in late April. Yonder Mountain String Band is proceeding with a new lineup: Ben Kaufman, Adam Aijala, and David Johnston are the band now, along with some "special guests" for this year's tour. A permanent lineup is promised for 2015.  Jeff Austin has left the band to pursue "his emerging solo career." Later, we learned that Ronnie McCoury and Jason Carter will join the band as special guests at their three Telluride shows this year.  Not too shabby, I'd say, and I fully expect…See More

Book Review: Telluride Bluegrass Festival: Forty Years of Festivation

It's been 40 years, with the 41st on the immediate horizon, and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival just keeps on rolling. Most years, Sam Bush asks the crowd, "How many people have been here all four days?" in remembrance of the years when it was a three-day festival, when the same question was asked by then-emcee and festival co-founder Fred Shellman. Pastor Mustard (more on him later) has said that Fred's next question was, "How many people like cats?" It's a four-day festival now -- no cats…See More

Rosanne Cash – The River & The Thread (Album Review)

A feather's not a bird The rain is not the sea A stone is not a mountain But a river runs through meRosanne Cash wrote these words before The River & The Thread was conceived, but the rest of the song was apparently waiting for a geographical context before it showed itself. The context that the chorus found was a trip through the edges of Appalachia, over to the top of the Mississippi Delta, and across the River into Arkansas.  Ms. Cash knew that it had happened during a sewing lesson from…See More

Good to make your acquaintance Mando Lines. We obviously share an interest for some of the same music. Many reviews I do on No Depression are a mix of American, European (Scotland)  Australian, New Zealand and Canadian artists -- seems this world is filled with some very talented artists that have interpreted and reinterpreted Americana-Roots in wondrous ways. And Mississippi -- what a hot bed for great music that state is. J.

The Civil Wars did perform at the AMA's. They sang Barton Hollow and got a roaring standing ovation. Their appearance was questionable prior to, because J.P. White had lost his voice and had to cancel previous concerts leading up to the AMA's.
Their success can be attributed to so much more than Taylor Swift's tweets...in fact, I heard of them through Justin Townes Earle and Billy Reid tweets. A free download on ITunes and videos on Utube the word as well. So, please continue to learn more about this duo who have paid their dues prior to their coming together.
