Radical! The WOMAD world music festival in Taranaki was three days of greatness. My favorite performance was from the Sami Sisters, a three person pop-country band. Apparently they have a cd coming out soon. I’m actually kind of frustrated that I can’t have it right now. Geez. I’m on some kind of alt-Americana kick that I absolutely can’t shake.
A few months ago I heard Gillian Welch played at work and now I like her more than any artist I’ve learned about in … years. Hey not to mention the superb Elvis Perkins is now touring the US… if you get a chance to see him in a smallish venue, you should grab it.
