Milk Carton Kids
It’s not that Jordan Tice is living on the fringes of Nashville, holed up during quarantine in a little house in Madison, Tennessee. It’s that he’s living in a Nashville that’s based more on the community roots of the music than on the glitz of country stars in secluded recording studios. He’s living in a Nashville that’s moved even beyond East Nashville’s underground Americana scene to a more free-wheeling house session community based in Madison.
The Folk Americana Roots Hall of Fame (FARHOF), announces its Winter/Spring 2020 schedule of Hallways -- the Hall’s official podcast -- airing weekly beginning in February. The series includes in depth, personal interviews with Folk, Americana, and Roots artists like Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Tom Rush, Keb' Mo', Milk Carton Kids and The Mammals.

This event is a rare opportunity to see brother sister duo, Sean and Sara Watkins, as Watkins Family Hour, a project they started in 2002 in Los Angeles to try out some original songs and a few covers that wouldn’t work in Nickel Creek.

Picture it: The most beautiful outdoor festival grounds at Planet Bluegrass in stunning Lyons, Colorado. Three days full of world-class musicians from around the globe. 5,000 of your new best friends. For music lovers, this is a dream come true.
The epic music extravaganza this past weekend was beyond stellar. I loved all the music, and the following were my favorites:
97.3 KBCO & Z2 Entertainment are proud to present Punch Brothers with The Milk Carton Kids to the Boulder Theater on Sunday, December 9th, 2012. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, July 20th, 2012 at 10:00 am for $26.50 in advance & $29.50 the day of the showThe title of the third Punch Brothers disc for Nonesuch, borrowed from one of their new songs, is more an exhortation than a taunt.
Kenneth Pattengale & Joey Ryan of Milk Carton Kids have great talent and passion behind their soulful guitar picking and melodramatic story telling. Their songs remind you of a cool summer night relaxing under the stars while enjoying the company of your loved one. This duo has struck a chord with their “coming-of-age” bluegrass acoustic stream of melodies.
