Perhaps it has to do with American’s wanting to reconnect with roots music. It could be that it blends vocal elements of folk music with musical complexity of jazz and classical composition. Perhaps people are just plain sick of what has been coined now as “country”, which appears to have transitioned into electric big-band steel guitar nonsense with even shallower lyrics.
Nestled away in the Manistee National Forest in the northern part of the mitten lie the beautiful grounds that Hoxeyville Music Festival calls home. The ninth installment of the festival proved to be one of the most exciting and eclectic lineups to date.
I am nobody special, I come from a nobody special family in a nobody special kind of town. However, when I spent Independence Day 2011 at Electric Forest Festival, I felt special. Suddenly I was from the String Cheese Incident’s family and I lived in the Sherwood Forest!
