Nashville teenage psych wonders The Paperhead announce Nationwide tour dates

Three 18 year olds from Nashville turning out tracks that play like lost nuggets from 1968, The Paperhead announce national tour dates accompanied by "spiritual advisor" Jeffrey Novak on farfisa bringing the vintage sounds of their Trouble In Mind-released self-titled LP to life.
Kicking off these dates, Trouble In Mind will be hosting a truly unique pressing/listening party at United Record Pressing in Nashville on June 16 for the limited vinyl only reissue of The Paperhead's debut cassette, Focus In On...The Looking Glass on TIM Records.
Pressed before your very eyes and immediately spun for the first time, this event celebrates both the earliest psychedlic experiments of the band and the vinyl process so integral to the label.

Bela Fleck & The Flecktones 2010 Winter Tour

Happy Holidays from the Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Bela Fleck and the Flecktones wanted to let you know that we have just 6 more shows this year on our west coast run; Chico, Santa Rosa, Oakland, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Tucson - starting tomorrow!

We are playing our derangements of holiday music, plus some 'non holiday' Flecktone standards - ALSO - we have our very special guests 'Alash' with us. They are incredible Tuvan Throatsingers - you won't believe them! Tuva is a region in Siberia where this amazing singing style is prevalent and these dudes are some of the best at it. Also we have Casey Dreissen sitting in on fiddle, he is a fantastic player. In Oakland, Howard Levy will take Jeff's place, he is the musical phenomenon who started the band with us in 1988. He is truly one of the greatest harmonica players to ever pick up the instrument and it's a rare chance to hear the 'Original Flecktones'. Bela, Victor, Jeff, Future Man and the whole Flecktone crew wish you a happy season and all the best for the new year!

Check out some Bela Fleck coverage on The Grateful Web.
