As a passionate supporter of house concerts and singer songwriters everywhere, I headed over to Nashville last week to check out the incredible lineup that is AmericanaFest. More music than you can imagine was showcased in venues, large and small, modern and funky – in a really good way. What an amazing collection of music! Here is a list of most of what I saw and heard; many of these we could arrange to have perform at your next house concert (*denotes house concert possibility).
Special shout out to Nora Jane Struthers and the Party Line, and Jeffrey Foucault, both former Rosecrest house concert performers – they each put on incredible shows and are rising high! Get them while you still can.
Rhiannon Giddens (wow!!)
Lee Ann Womack
Nikki Lane (I’m a new fan!)
Doug Seegers (fantastic)
Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings (amazing show)
