Jimmy Cliff - Many Rivers To Cross.

“He is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Bob Dylan called his song ‘Vietnam’ the greatest protest song he ever heard, and Springsteen regularly performs his song ‘Trapped.’ Jimmy Cliff is one of the great reggae songwriters and artists of our time. His role in The Harder They Come introduced reggae to the world, and he continues to bring a perfect combination of groove and message to audiences everywhere. His youthful looks and performance will surely get the reggae vibes blowing in the breeze at Fort Adams State Park.”

"Energy. It’s the first thing I listen for, especially with new artists. Compositions get better with time, and so does musical proficiency. But if there isn’t energy right from the start, it rarely comes later. So, what a joy it was to hear stunning musicianship, wild compositions, and enough energy to fill a stadium when I first heard (and felt) Rodrigo y Gabriela.”

Getting in a room with people you don’t know and knowing them at the end is music.

“Context is everything, and in 2014, folk music has, at its core, been re-contextualized – the branches of the genre more twisted than the roots that grew it. It’s a beautiful tree, though, so set down your snooty genre boxes and listen up.”
- Ellie Molitor

“Sometimes a voice just grabs you. A sound so compelling that when the song ends you are utterly distraught and when the next one starts you are completely elated. This is what was running through my head when I saw Aoife O’Donovan for the first time fronting Crooked Still.”
