The Uncle Tupelo No Depression Tribute Show at Off Broadway featured Cree Rider’s acoustic family, Fred Friction, the Dive Poets, the Trophy Mules, Melody Den, the Vondrukes, Grace Basement and the Brothers Lazaroff.
Colonel Ford took the stage Saturday evening with Gary Hunt (guitar and vocals) and Dade Farrar (upright bass and vocals) leading the way for a fantastic night of Americana and country music. The band had great energy that led perfectly into Son Volt's set.
Jonny Fritz was in full character, as is normal for him, as he took the stage. Fiddle player Joshua Hedley exploded on stage with multiple solos that kept the crowd listening. These two performers shine a new light to country music.
Sons of Fathers showed off their songwriting skills quite well at Off Broadway Thursday night. There were many cowboy hats on hand for the show as their country-styled music echoed throughout the venue.
With 50 years in the music business, Andre Williams does not disappoint. The documentary "Agile, Mobile, Hostile: A Year with Andre Williams" was screened before the show and only made one wonder what kind of show was about to happen.
