    SHOVELS & ROPE

    SHOVELS & ROPE with WILLIE WATSON

    It’s not all that unusual for musicians to talk the talk about taking a less-is-more approach to their work – but it’s rare indeed for artists to really walk the walk, and apply that philosophy across the board. Over the better part of a decade, Shovels & Rope have done just that, cutting unnecessary frills from their songs, not to mention the very way they live their musical lives.

    Mississippi-born, Nashville-bred Cary Ann Hearst and Texas-born, Colorado-raised Michael Trent forged singular paths as solo artists before connecting – both musically and personally – in Charleston, South Carolina. While they’d both had burgeoning solo careers (Cary Ann earned kudos for her 2006 album Dust and Bones, Michael with his band, The Films, as well as his own solo outings), they quickly found that both their voices – which entwine with eerie beauty in their haunting harmonies – and philosophies matched up perfectly, and a beautiful partnership was born.

    “Consciously or not, we’ve always insulated ourselves from outside influences,” says Cary Ann. “The key, for us, is to be authentic to ourselves – and, sometimes to a fault, we’ve managed to do that. I don’t think we’d be able to keep doing this if we backed off from what we were doing when we started.”

    Run Boy Run

    Join Run Boy Run for the Phoenix release of their new album, Something to Someone.

    The unique sound of Run Boy Run is rooted in the traditional music of the Appalachian South. Bands such as Nickel Creek and Crooked Still have paved the way for the music of Run Boy Run: dynamic, orchestral, and overflowing with beauty. Run Boy Run exists in the tension between tradition and frontier. Three strong female voices weave a spectacular tapestry of sound. Award-winning fiddle cuts a path for a tightly formed rhythmic front. Every arrangement is—at its core—beautiful.

    Brother and sister Matt (fiddle, guitar) and Grace Rolland (cello, vocals) have fiddle music running through their blood. Raised with a bow and rosin on every bedside table , they were a natural fit for Run Boy Run. Sisters Bekah (fiddle, vocals, guitar) and Jen Sandoval (mandolin, vocals) grew up deeply ingrained in the bluegrass festivals of Arizona, so they, too, found a home in Run Boy Run. Jesse Allen (bass) was brought up on opera and western swing, and grew to love the natural fusion inherent in American music. The whole truly exceeds the sum of the parts, as touches of classical, jazz, and folk express themselves through the old-time core of Run Boy Run’s unique sound.

    Aoife O’Donovan & Noam Pikelny

    The new band from Aoife O’Donovan and Noam Pikelny is a collaboration stemming from a musical friendship many years in the making. Arguably two of the most celebrated musicians of their generation within the roots music field, O’Donovan and Pikelny have been crossing paths at venues and festivals for the last decade.

    O’Donovan was lead singer and principal songwriter of Crooked Still, which grew into one of the world’s most acclaimed progressive string groups over the ensuing decade. The stunning versatility and appeal of her voice led to collaborations across a wide variety of genres with everyone from Alison Krauss to Dave Douglas, along with a role as vocalist on the GRAMMY-winning Goat Rodeo Sessions alongside Chris Thile, Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, and Stuart Duncan.

    Noam Pikelny has emerged as the preeminent banjoist among a new generation of acoustic musicians. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “the pros’ top banjo picker,” Noam is a foudning member of Punch Brothers. In 2010, Pikelny was awarded the first annual Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass. In 2012, his second album, Beat The Devil and Carry A Rail, received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Bluegrass Album. Pikelny has shared the stage with the Decemberists, Marcus Mumford, Bela Fleck, Steve Martin, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and others.
