The Devil Makes Three, after 10 years playing together, may be at their zenith, thus far.
The Devil's voice is sweet to hear. And it could only be heard in the Grove last night in the form of California-based act the Devil Makes Three.
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.
I first saw the Devil Makes Three on the live webcast of the Newport Folk Festival last summer and thought they sounded and looked a little like the really pissed-off folks that got stuck in Nebraska in the 1889 Land Rush: destined to build houses out of sod and eke out a living with crude hand tools.
