"We had the great good fortune to see & hear Ben Bullington at the 2013 Jammin' at Hippie Jack's spring festival. Having never even heard of him, we instantly fell in love with this gentle, truly brilliant singer/songwriter (and…"
"Thanks, Ryan, for an excellent interview and thanks, John Carter, for an outstanding album! I witnessed the extraordinary presence of Johnny Cash one afternoon in New York City (sometime in the late 70s): I was just emerging…"
"Kim, this is the perfect example of why I am a somewhat-fanatic fan of your writing. WOW! I am a huge Nickel Creek/Chris Thile/Punch Brothers fan, but even if I weren't, this article would have had me shaking my head in…"
"I was a Leon Russell fan from the first time I heard him, and "Carny" was the soundtrack for one of the most memorable times of my life, a 2-week trip in a converted van up the northern California/Oregon coast with my then-boyfriend. …"
"You've got a valid point here, Ed. We are avid live music & festival goers and often meet others close to our ages (over 60) although we do notice some 30- and 40-somethings as well. Over Christmas I attended a Phish show…"
"I really like "Lights from a Chemical Plant" and was eager to see Robert Ellis in person. I was in the audience at a very poorly attended show in my area recently and after he made several egregious comments, finally walked…"
"Oh dear. As an avid Avett Brothers fan it's hard to decide what to say first. "The boys" are excellent musicians, sensitive songwriters, and moving, riveting performers (they blew the lid off Suwannee Springfest last…"
"I've said it before and I'll say it again: discovering Dave Van Ronk's music in the summer of 1965 absolutely changed my life! Thinking I was waaay cool because I loved the Kingston Trio and (gasp!) Peter, Paul & Mary, when…"
"Thanks for the terrific interview. I've loved Aaron Neville for years, convinced that if there IS a Heaven, the angels' singing sounds just like him! I've seen many, many live shows, but one of my favorite remains The…"
"We've been lucky enough to catch LSD at two Albino Skunk festivals in the past couple of years, plus a gig at last fall's L.E.A.F. festival (Black Mountain NC) that totally blew the crowd away. Last night's sold-out show at…"
"Perhaps it's more accurate to say that Neil Young no longer has the impact that he did in the 60s and 70s. I respect the man and his music but he doesn't even make my Top 10 list of Artists Who Really Matter. Dylan is,…"
"Thank you, Mr. Williams! I concur wholeheartedly...the microbreweries of this country are producing beers the likes of which Germany can't even IMAGINE! For me, that was the only false note in an otherwise awesome commercial."
"Rick Boardman said it best. I don't 'do' football and although I am an advertising junkie (my brief tenure at a major Madison Avenue agency was fascinating) I hadn't seen the ads. Watched this one, and loved it. …"
