As a busker on the streets of New Orleans, Gill Landry's path led him to become an indispensable member of Old Crow Medicine Show. His new album Piety & Desire is a love song to his beginnings in New Orleans. Named after two streets that run parallel through the city’s 9th ward where Landry cut his teeth for years.
The iconic and profoundly influential Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (NGDB), often cited as a catalyst for an entire movement in Country Rock and American Roots Music, released their new live EP called Under the Big Top Vol. 1 this week. The EP features six fan favorites performed live including "Mr. Bojangles," "Bless the Broken Road" and "Fishin' in the Dark," which was recently certified GOLD by the RIAA for digital sales. Recorded in 2010 at the band's performance at Big Top Chautauqua in Wisconsin, the EP perfectly captures a live experience with NGDB.
