New Folk Revival features Pat Lambert on guitar and lead vocals, Eric Wagner playing a variety of instruments and doing lead vocals as well, and Joe Farmer on bass and harmony vocals. The band began with Lambert and Wagner in early 2010, with Farmer’s talents added in the fall of 2010. While the band is new, the members have over 50 years of combined musical experience behind them. As the band name implies, the band plays mostly folk music, including some originals and other tunes from the Celtic and American folk music repertoire. Influences include Nancy Griffith, Emmy Lou Harris, Kate Wolf, Gillian Welch, Bill Staines, and Adrianne Young. With a nice variety of great songs both new and old, the band presents these with rich vocal harmony, a dash of humor, and tasteful instrumentation.
The Umbrella Brothers - Sept 15th
The Umbrella Brothers are a bluegrass band from Salt Lake City, Utah. The band is made up of 5 members, including Brian Thurber, Matt Conlin, Ben Weiss, Kameron Anton and Joshua Hight.
Hectic Hobo recorded their first album in a basement with a single microphone and an outdated laptop. Now, four full-length albums and hundreds of shows later, they have toured the US and Europe in celebration of Died On The Fourth Of July, an epic Americana road trip of bright and dark, loud and gentle, hopeful and condemning songs that follow in the Wild West gypsy rock tradition that Hectic Hobo has built and now mastered.
