CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD is now in the midst of one of their most prolific periods to date. With stunning musicianship and infectious energy, the band intertwines country, blues and psychedelia, even channeling freewheeling 60s’ folk. Their stellar new album, ‘Barefoot In The Head,’ marks the CRB’s third studio release in just two years, and it finds them pushing boundaries and breaking new ground with more joy and wonder than ever before. The album showcases the continued growth of Robinson’s songwriting partnership with his bandmates (guitarist Neal Casal, drummer Tony Leone, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, and bassist Jeff Hill) and revels in the kind of adventurousness that can only come from five artists tuned into the same sonic wavelength. http://chrisrobinsonbrotherhood.com/

WHISKEY SHIVERS is a masterfully talented string band known for raucous live shows based out of Austin, Texas. The band have made a name for themselves with a genre-pushing sound that the Washington Post called “apocalyptic Americana.” NPR described them as “frenetic bluegrass” with a “punk spirit.” The band members also just wrapped shooting for their role in the upcoming film ‘Pitch Perfect 3,’ It might sound strange for a bluegrass band, but the big screen is the perfect place for Whiskey Shivers, who had their first major breakout when their horror-movie influenced music video went viral after ending up on the top of Reddit’s front page. The band’s new album is ‘Some Part of Something.’   http://whiskeyshivers.com/

BELA FLECK AND ABIGAIL WASHBURN, “the king and queen of the banjo” (Paste Magazine), have a musical partnership like no other. Béla Fleck is a fifteen-time Grammy Award winner who has taken the instrument across multiple genres, and Abigail Washburn a singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo player who re-radicalized it by combining it with Far East culture and sounds. With one eye on using the banjo to showcase America’s rich heritage and the other pulling the noble instrument from its most familiar arena into new and unique realms, the duo’s self-titled debut earned the 2016 Grammy for Best Folk Album. Their second album ‘Echo in the Valley’ on Rounder Records is simultaneously familiar and wildly innovative.  https://www.belafleck.com/bela-fleck-abigail-washburn/
