The Oh Hellos Delivered A High-Intensity Show – As Always!

Ever since the first time I saw The Oh Hellos at Newport Folk Festival, I try to see them whenever they are in town (wherever my current town may be), so I was delighted when they announced a show at the Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale!

I was even more delighted when a band to whom they introduced me several years ago in Boston, Family and Friends, was announced as the opener!

Who Could Ask For Anything More…

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.

What a lucky week I have had, musically speaking! This headlining show by The Oh Hellos at Paradise Rock Club was the second amazing triple-play show in three days!

The Oh Hellos delivered my favorite set of the 2014 Newport Folk Festival and I have been eagerly anticipating a Boston show since then. My patience was rewarded by this sold-out evening of incredible Americana music.

The Oh Hellos Will Rock The ‘Dise!

I can’t wait for this show! The Oh Hellos, arguably my favorite act from the 2014 Newport Folk Festival, have their first (I believe) headlining SOLD-OUT show in Boston at The Paradise Rock Club on Friday, November 13th.

I would say ‘be there or be square’ but if you do not already have a ticket, you’re out of luck! Family and Friends and Cereus Bright open the show.

Initial Musings On Newport Folk Festival 2014

This year’s Newport Folk Festival has been ‘in the can’ for about 18 hours. I have not yet looked at my photos in depth, but wanted to get something out for those who were there as well as those who weren’t.

What interesting announcements this week from Newport Folk Festival! Four acts were announced and I only know two of them – and one of those two is merely a name I recognize.

The acts are:

Benjamin Booker – a New Orleans based singer-songwriter

Death Vessel – Rhode Island based

The Oh Hellos – a little bit of Texas

Band of Horses – I’m excited about this act because their show next week in Somerville, Massachusetts sold out before I could get tickets!
