Thank you Bill Donabedian. The founder and public face of the Bunbury Music Festival put together a great team that produced a top-notch event in the face of some obstacles. Now, do it again next year – please.
The Nashville singer-songwriter who wears his hippie stoner persona proudly is actually a workaholic who released two albums in the first four months of the year. “Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables” is a scathing indictment of the current state of the union, while “Time as We Know It,” is a loving tribute to Jerry Jeff Walker, the man who changed the course of Snider’s life.
Dar Williams invited more than 200 folks over Saturday night for a spirited evening of songs and stories.
In lieu of hosting at her house, which is in New York, Williams turned the Redmoor in Mount Lookout into a suitable stand-in as she played eight of the 10 tunes from “In the Time of Gods,” and six others with the help of keyboard player Bryn Roberts and guitarist Josh Kaler.
The music was certainly the centerpiece, but it was some unexpected moments that lent the night its homey feel.
