Sounds Of Hopscotch 2018: Julie Byrne

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.

Julie Byrne's voice is something else. This well-traveled siren has a voice capable of so much expression, so much emotion. It's a voice that has seen mile after mile of country, a voice that has felt more than it can say. Almost. Byrne's smoky, amber tones are instantly magnetic, and I can only imagine the captivated hush that will be part of her set at Hopscotch this weekend.

Julie Byrne plays Nash Hall on Friday night.
