Sounds Of Hopscotch 2018: H.C. McEntire

Of all the festivals that exist across the US of A, Hopscotch has to be one of the best. This gem of a festival has a great location (downtown Raleigh), and benefits from seriously strong curation year after year. I've had a great time whenever I've been, and if you're heading down this year you're in for a ton of treats. I've got some suggestions for you, and I hope you'll check these folks out regardless of whether you'll be Hopscotch-ing or not. 

H.C. McEntire's voice first struck me when she was crooning with excellent Triangle outfit Mount Moriah. These days, McEntire is giving voice to modern, sophisticated country-fried vignettes - the foot-stomping, heartstring-tugging kind. Her voice is strong but vulnerable, and capable of exceptionally beautiful moments.

H.C. McEntire plays City Plaza Thursday night.
