Join 2013 festival faves Hurray for the Riff Raff as they join up with Spirit Family Reunion and The Deslondes to bring soul-stirring, heel-kicking Americana roots music to one fabulous night at the Biltmore.
Hurray for the Riff Raff set tongues a-wagging and the buzz a-buzzing the minute they hit the stage at this year’s festival. Our discerning audience recognized something special when they heard it! Led by Bronx-born New Orleanian Alynda Lee Segarra, “Hurray’s” music falls solidly into the Southern American back porch revival tradition, infused with a very modern, eclectic spirit. Their latest album, “Look Out Mama” covers a wide array of musical ground, with every song unified by Alynda’s soulful vocals and expert songwriting, and punctuated by Yosi Perlstein’s brilliant fiddle. If you caught them at the festival, we don’t need to tell you how great they are. If you missed them this summer, here’s your second chance!
“Dusty acoustic guitars, wailing fiddles and weeping accordions, with a woozy-yet-skintight rhythm section — and topped off with burr-edged vocals that sound like they’ve been soaked in a Mason jar for generations — it’s the type of music that blurs the line between past and present so thoroughly, and so deftly, that time feels irrelevant.” -Paste Magazine Best of What’s Next
Spirit Family Reunion play homegrown American folk-bluegrass-roots music at 100 miles an hour — with energy and passion, and the easy precision of a well-oiled machine. The sextet started singing together on the street corners, farmer’s markets and subway stations of New York City, their songs ringing out in a pure and timeless way in that hippest of burgs. Now with a growing fan-base across the continent, they pick their banjoes, belt out gorgeous three-part harmonies, and generally create a wonderful ruckus wherever they perform.
The Deslondes (formerly Sam Doores + Riley Downing and The Tumbleweeds) are a honky-tonk, old country-blues, early R&B, and gospel-influenced New Orleans quintet. Their name is taken from the street in the Holy Cross neighborhood of New Orleans where the band members first came together. Since releasing their debut album, Holy Cross Blues, last year, they have been on the road touring with the Lumineers, Alabama Shakes, John Fullbright and Hurray for the Riff Raff, among others.
Here’s all three bands playing together at Newport Folk Fest earlier this year:
