Ann Powers, Who Should I See At The Americana Fest?
Americana music celebrates itself this week with the Americana Music Festival and the Awards show underway through the weekend in Nashville. We invite NPR’s Ann Powers to weigh in on who she is looking forward to seeing at the many showcases in clubs around the city this week. Her picks mirror the diversity of the genre with The Promised Land Band, one of many rocking roots groups from Nashville, a heart-stopping traditional country singer in Jason Eady and even Baskery, 3 sisters from Sweden who you might just call the Scandinavian Haim! Plus, from Austin, the stomping bluegrass of Whiskey Shivers and music from a stellar new album from Lee Ann Womack. Download and discover who just might be next year’s new Americana Emerging Artist.
