ON THE ROAD RECAP: Sharon Van Etten & Her Endless Tour

photo by Erik Jacobs at NPR

A week or two ago, Sharon Van Etten and her lovely band took the stage at Newport Folk Festival to a gentle, but enthusiastic roar from an eager audience. Kicking off the set with “All I Can,” Sharon delivers another wonderful performance. NPR writes, “Van Etten alternately exudes quiet confidence, sweet shyness and bold aggression, depending on a given song or moment, and never lets her audience’s attention lag.”

Listen and download the performance at NPR.

Sharon’s in the midst of a yearlong tour and as expected, the feedback has been nothing shy of incredible. Below we’ve included some live footage from her show at Milwaukee’s Turner Hall Ballroom, plus more links to photos and awesome reviews! Have fun digging in and then get out to see a live show yourself! Sharon & co. travel to San Francisco for two performances today – one at Outside Lands Music Festival at 1:15 PM and one at the Rickshaw Stop for an after show later Friday tonight. Full list of tour dates HERE! Read the rest of this entry »

The Cave Singers traveled coast to coast this past weekend to perform at the historic Newport Folk Festival. You can stream their entire set courtesy of NPR Music right HERE.

The Cave Singers Tour with Fleet Foxes. Play Newport Folk Festival.

On the heels of The Cave Singers’ fevered, inspired run at SXSW, we are honored to announce that the band will join their Seattle bretheren Fleet Foxes on a full U.S. tour in May. A true coalesence of modern, left-of-center folk songcraft, the tour is sure to be one of the premiere bills for the genre in 2011. Post-Fleet Foxes, The Cave Singers head to Europe for select dates, before returning to America for more Midwestern dates, some scheduled and more to follow. July 30-31 you’ll find The Cave Singers performing at the historic Newport Folk Festival, and August finds the band back in Europe for dates at the Beacons and Greenman festivals.
