From our session with The Low Anthem last week, this is a traditional prison song which has also been sung by Leadbelly, Bob Dylan and The Band.

I don’t usually write many words after attending shows (don’t have the time), but I do feel the need to say a few things after Friday night’s The Low Anthem concert.

I go to a lot of shows (obviously). Typically, beforehand, I have a certain expectation, and 90% of the time the show ends up…

Click through for a great recap of The Low Anthem performance at the Somerville Theater last Friday. Chris, good running into you…we’ll have to hit up more shows together.

To further advance the dialogue with both established and budding musicians, the Newport Festivals Foundation, Inc.™ announced the creation of its Newport Folk Festival Board of Advisors. The panel of musicians will help ensure that the Newport Folk Festival remains a significant, viable, and influential institution for years to come. The Board of Advisors includes: Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Gillian Welch, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, and Ben Knox Miller of The Low Anthem.
"The Newport Folk Festival’s Board of Advisors is comprised of very special performers and we’re pleased that they have agreed to join us as we return to our roots as a non-profit organization,” said George Wein, Chairman of the Newport Festivals Foundation and festival co-founder along with Pete Seeger.   “Each of these musicians personifies and enhances the spirit of the Newport Folk Festival, which honors past, present, and future icons of the ever-changing folk scene.”
The five founding members have all previously appeared at the Newport Folk Festival, and, in a further testament to their importance to the advisory board and in true Folk Family fashion, each has a special connection that has bonded them to Newport.

Oh my god, the waters cold and shapeless,
Oh my god, it’s all around.
Oh my god, life is cold and formless,
Oh my god, it’s all around.
