Had he not passed away at age 55, legendary folk singer Woody Guthrie would be 98 today. As far as I know, there aren’t any official celebrations going on around Fayetteville, but there is a traveling folk duo playing in town tonight. That’ll do.
California’s Troubaduo is at Rogue on Dickson. The husband/wife duo, made up of Jill Marie and Arkansas native Bryson VanCleve, say they feel a bit out of place in their Los Angeles headquarters. That explains the 120+ nights a year they spend on the road. Nine months a year on the road is hard enough. Marie and VanCleve do it without the help of a booking agency, management company, PR firm, or a major record label. Respect.
The Great Scotts are at George’s tonight and they’re kind enough to have agreed to let local newcomers The Riflemen share the stage for their live debut this evening. That or they’re all friends. Either way, we love hearing about new bands. Good luck, Riflemen
