The Americana Music Association announced today that Robert Cray, Iris DeMent, Hi Rhythm, Graham Nash, HighTone Founders Larry Sloven and Bruce Bromberg and previously announced Van Morrison will be honored during the Americana Music Association’s℠ 16th Annual Honors & Awards on Wednesday, September 13th at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville!
The Lowell Summer Music Series announced its next show of the 2017 season and it is another winner! Graham Nash brings his duo act (with Shane Fontayne, who had appeared at the Series with Marc Cohn and Suzanne Vega) for two sets at the Series on Friday, July 21st! Wow!!! I saw him last summer at the Newport Folk Festival and was in tears for most of his too-short set.
I am feeling overwhelmed with feelings of joy, gratitude, fellowship and love for last weekend’s Newport Folk Festival. It was as close to perfection as I can imagine.
Sure, there were sets I missed that I know I would have enjoyed, but I am thoroughly satisfied with the sets I saw. Rather than moaning about what I did not see, I choose to rejoice in what I saw.
