Together, they are heavily influenced by the music of the Middle East and Thailand and you could say their style is instrumental-soulful-psychedelic funk. It was another banner year for the venerable festival. This time the group was playing on the smaller Quad stage, despite the fact that it was probably the most anticipated set of the day. Learning to unleash my greatest potential! But by the time I arrived at Fort Adams, the rain clouds had cleared, and the weekend-long event was in full swing. Cloher plays straight-ahead folk rock and she does it hard. Halloween season is upon us and we are kicking it off by discussing decades old superstitions.

So you map out your weekend beforehand, hoping to stick with the schedule. I saw myself in my past life when bassist Laura Lee of Khruangbin took the stage in all her costumed glory. Believe it or not, I had never heard Sturgill Simpson despite his previous appearances at the festival. Tune in to hear my thoughts on this! His music could be the soundtrack for us all at a time when a powerful resistance movement is underway in this country.
