You Might Know These Artists. Can You Introduce Me? [v. 2.0]


15 Mar 2007, 17:39

I am going to a music festival in rural North Florida called Suwannee Springfest. But I hardly know anything about most of the artists who are appearing! And I have no music from nearly all of them.

But I have heard some of the music, and I have heard and enjoyed the kind of music that will be there. And I know I will love the venue, because I've been there. It will be a great time and wonderful music, for sure

But do you know any of these artists? If so, can you recommend what music of theirs I should seek out to get "the flavor" of what they do? What musicians on this list should be on my "don't miss" list, and why? I know I won't want to even try to see all of them. Indeed, I might take a nap or two! OK. So here is the list:

    Have no idea about any of them (except few, who really need no introduction). If Will Kimbrough is related to Junior Kimbrough he should be gooooood. But thats as close as i can get :/

    Hi, Bill The bad news (for me) is that I won't be able to make it to Springfest; gotta work. As far as the artists, Ray Wylie hubbard is one of my favorite singer-songwriters. Check out these songs: Cooler 'n' Hell, Up Against The Wall Redneck Mother, Snake Farm, Choctaw Bingo(this is a James McMurtry cover). As far as albums, try [i]Delerium Tremolos[/i]. Donna the Buffalo is a fantastic live band; think Jam band meets frathouse party band. Don't know much about their studio work, but make sure you catch their show at Springfest. Will Kimbrough is a Nashville singer-songwriter who is known as one of the premiere session musicians in Nashville. He's done a lot of work with Rodney Crowell and Todd Snider, including producing Snider's [i]East Nashville Skyline [/i] album. Jimmy Buffett recorded his song Piece of Work on his [i]License to Chill[/i] album. Well, hope you have a great time at Springfest. Sorry I won't get to see you there. Randy

    Hi, Bill Also on your don't miss list should be Jim Lauderdale. His music seems to bounce back and forth between old-time country and bluegrass. You should check out an album he recorded with Ralph Stanley called [i]Lost in the Lonesome Pines[/i]. Randy

    Hello. I am making my first trek to this festival. There is a band not on your list called Sloppy Joe. They are from Wisconsin, and are the main reason I'm going. They have a camping area called slopryland (they call their brand of music slopgrass)and I'm told it is an intregal part of the fest. I did not know of Last FM, and I'm glad I followed your link. Hope to bump into you there. Cheers.

    I put them on the list and will be sure to check them out! If you bump into me, you might recognize me due to pressure from Real Avatar to comply with their norms. ;)

    The Duhks play good bluegrass music. They have a couple of albums available on emusic. I have their most recent album, Migrations, in one of my lists on emusic ready to be downloaded in the not-to-distant future. I say definitely check them out.

    Happend to see this and realize that it's way to late to respond. But I hope you went to see Ollabelle. And if you did or if you like the Band, you should check out Levon Helm's new album Dirt Farmer. Amy, who sings in Ollabelle, produced it, and sings and plays on it. She is Levon's daughter. Dirt Farmer is such a good Americana album that I find myself writing this rather pointless message (which reads like spam too)

    Thanks for this info, my friend. I have left a shout on your page on how this helps me appreciate and connect some good music, some bygone shows I've seen, etc.
