Rare footage of musical performances from the archives of collector Joe Lauro, featuring such icons as Bill Monroe, Leadbelly, Elvis Presley, the Carter Family, Woody Guthrie, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and The Staples Singers, among others.
Singer-songwriter, author and musical royalty, Rosanne Cash’s songs crystallize sweeping ideas – history, the American south, the meaning of home – into elegant tales that draw on everything from rockabilly to the blues, from the sounds of Appalachia to rootsy pop.
The Lone Bellow
With tight harmonies and driving anthems, critics’ darlings The Lone Bellow thrive on the cusp of classic country and indie rock.
Buddy Miller & Jim Lauderdale
Nashville go-to-guy Buddy Miller and fellow singer-songwriter and elder roots music statesman Jim Lauderdale restlessly, seamlessly mix bluegrass, blues, rock, and folk.
