The start of festival season is once again upon us, and one of the first fests of the season has turned into one of the finest. Capitalizing on its location in the path of many SXSW-bound bands, Savannah Stopover's 2017 lineup looks incredibly tempting. If I was going down there myself, these are the bands I'd just about move heaven and earth to try to see. And if you're free between March 9-11, why not head on down to Savannah and see what all the fuss is about for yourself?
Sounding very much like the country gone to the city (or perhaps vice versa), Tall Tall Trees beautifully brings traditional folk elements into modernity. Finger picking and a homespun, earth-bound voice seamlessly blend into today's tempestuous whirlwind, making for listening experiences of pure joy.
