It's Too Late to Stop Now: My Five Takeaways From AmericanaFest 2017

Hit it out of the park! Thanks....

Great photos and love the Van Morrison reference "Too Late To Stop Now."

I was wondering who would notice that, even though I did not mention Van in the article. His Ryman performance was the shortest and most perfunctory that I can recall. It was nice to hear that he gave a great performance the next night.

Good article and good photos (including # 39 of 119 ) of David Olney, left unnamed with another unidentified musician. David was Americana before Americana was a thing. ;) Also nice to see a mention and photo of Boston's Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards

    

 

Me, too. I first met Olney in 1973 or 1974 in a college coffee house. We had a nice chat afterwards, it seems we both had seen Townes in a small Athens, GA club a couple years before.

Nice pictures with plenty of shots of women in roots music.  My favorite new discovery artists for the last few months have included the female alt. country singers/songwriters like Margo Price, Nikki Lane, Kasey Chambers (especially most recent album) and Allison Moorer.   I saw Margo Price in outdoor concert recently and she and her band put on a kickin' uptempo honky-tonk set.
