On Monday, the fourth week of A Concert A Day kicks off with Miya Folick, one of the most memorable sets of Pickathon 2019. The L.A. dark pop balladeer, known for her soaring vocals and unmitigated on-stage energy, once used Tinder to put together her band. Monday’s stream of Folick’s Woods Stage performance will be hosted by Paste Magazine’s Ellen Johnson. Acclaimed roots-gospel duo The War and Treaty (Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Blount-Trotter) also played the Woods Stage in 2018. That set, streaming on Thursday, comes after the couple performed at the 2020 GRAMMYs. And continuing in our tradition of cinematic connections, you can also see Tanya’s performance of “His Eye Is on The Sparrow” with Lauren Hill in Sister Act 2, in what has since become one of the most memorable musical moments in film of the 1990s. We also have a historic Pickathon performance from J. Mascis’ Dinosaur Jr. The alternative rock legends graced the Mt. Hood Stage in 2017 with their grungy, jangly, mesozoic wall of sound for a performance that has gone down in the annals of Pickathon history. Week Four also brings us sets from D.C. rock and roll dreamcasters Priests, scruffy psych-rock duo (and Richard Swift discovery) Foxygen, and Lauren Morrow, one of Americana music’s most daring and exciting voices. Closing out the week is Valerie June’s 2014 performance at the festival. June draws from the deep wells of American roots music, but her virtuosic roots-country filled with ragtime and blues is a genre all her own and her 2014 Woods Stage set built a whole new world for everyone there. Don’t miss your chance to see it!
With partnership from The Recording Academy, A Concert A Day brings 60 concerts from Pickathon over 60 days, premiering each day at 1:00 pm (Pacific Time) on Facebook, Twitch (via Amazon Music), and YouTube. All donations go directly to MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. Thanks to Amazon Music, Wayfinder Beer, Brew Dr. Kombucha, and Klean Kanteen.
