Loch Lomond, everyone else live on OPB
Thanks to Twitter, I was turned onto this live in-studio performance on OPB featuring Loch Lomond, and couldn’t help but share.
Way back in May, I posted here about Loch Lomond, a chamber folk group from Portland headed by singer-songwriter Richie Young. Since then, the group has made a new EP (Night Bats, out this week) and Young has opened a new music venue in Portland called the Woods, which caters to the kind of hybridized, direction-forging music he and so many other Portlanders are making (Laura Gibson, Norfolk and Western, Shelley Short, anyone else on the Hush label, for that matter, their friends and collaborators).
Once you’ve listened to the full performance, I’d recommend clicking around the site for other sessions with pretty much everyone in the world. There’s good stuff from the Avetts, Deer Tick, Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter, Neko Case, Weinland, the Wooden Birds, and so many other fantastic whatever-that-is artists.
