We've emerged from our winter hibernation and look forward to a merry and musical 2015. Although much of the country is currently braced in cold, we're warmed by the news that Newport Folk Festival tickets are again on sale. And again, it will sell out, so act quickly and enjoy this magical weekend.
A couple of years ago, Phosphorescent played one of the weekend's most magical sets (You can hear it here, via NPR) and if that set was good, his latest release sounds even better. On February 17, Matthew Houck and his bandmates will warm up your winter with an epic 3xLP live album, Live From the Music Hall. Houck's tender tenor wobbles between warm and weary, but he never loses his verve, and his band absolutely smokes. Give a listen to "Nothing Was Stolen" below and pre-order the album here.
