The music began with Leeann who sang some welcome songs, earlier than Ben Jones entered the stage. He performed a superb solo set. He will get higher and higher, and shortly somebody should uncover his skills (apart from Brian Wilson, who has used him and Andrea Magee in his band currently).

After Ben Jones, Texas String Meeting was on, with up to date bluegrass. An important band that I want to hear extra of. Additionally they got here again for a few songes whereas we waited for Jon Langford.

My favourite band at the present time was Madam Radar, who got here after the Texas String Meeting. They’re a four-piece band, and I’ve seen the electrical model of the band at The Saxon Pub. With their top quality enjoying and nice harmonizing, they managed the acoustic format completely good.

Jon Langford is a daily at SXSW together with his totally different bands, The Wacos, The Jon Langford Band, generally The Mekons and normally yet another. His exhibits with these bands are nice, punkish, and with a lot of humour. This yr I noticed him on the Yard Canine occasion, that was held at AGBG, and in an acoustic model at Leeann’s Picnic.

Possibly this format is the longer term for the Barn Dance, because it doesn’t contain so heavy logistics, and must be much less bothersome for these neighbors that doesn’t like folks having enjoyable with good music the Sunday after SXSW?
