Music City Roots: GrassRoots MP3 Music Compilation Available

RootsGrassMusic City Roots and Compass Records don't just love bluegrass; they believe in bluegrass. It’s where American folk traditions and cultivated musicianship meet. And over the 60 years since its founding fathers mixed old-time, swing and gospel with primal drive, bluegrass has been a dynamic, inclusive, democratic music. Our definition of bluegrass is broad, with Doyle Lawson’s scriptural traditional flavor on the same show as Frank Solivan’s funky cover of a 60s pop classic. Music City Roots: GrassRoots contains ten varied and magnificent artists performing songs that touch on coal mining, a country store, doing time and good corn liquor.

Lindsay Lou and The Flatbellys Release Their Shrouds with New Album

Release Your ShroudsYoung Michigan "rootsgrass" band Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys pack a tight punch. Instrumentally, they can turn on a dime, and their arrangements show a well-developed taste in music. Based on bluegrass traditions but frequently dipping into swing jazz and popular song craft, their sound is deftly guided by the clarion vocals of lead singer Lindsay "Lou" Rilko. Their new album, Release Your Shrouds, marks a remarkable step forward, and that's thanks in part to the relationship between the two singers, Lindsay and Joshua Rilko, which blossomed in their college days and, with their recent marriaqe in July 2011, now forms the core-of the band.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
