Featuring

The Felice Brothers

The Felice Brothers appearing at this event

Unschooled illegal street / subway musicians from the start, their distinct brand of songwriting and the lawless sound they've forged, has earned them comparisons to Woodie Guthrie, Neil Young, Walt Whitman, Bob Dylan and James Brown. They now find their homemade recordings played on a growing list of FM radio dials across the USA!

Carson McHone

Carson McHone appearing at this event

Carson McHone, a songwriter from Austin, Texas, “writes songs like her life depends on it” (Ray Wylie Hubbard), bringing an intelligence to alt-country that is both immediate and lyrical. Dark, driving and evocative, her music shines a light not only on McHone's honky-tonk roots, but on her development as a modern, alt-country storyteller, pushing traditional sounds and themes into a modern context. She's inspired by diverse sources like Dylan, the Velvet Underground, and American novelist Thomas Wolfe, unconcerned with flying the flag of old-school country. She wears her eclecticism proudly, with McHone singing each song in a voice that is worldly-wise and woozily gorgeous.
