Don’t Miss Spirit Family Reunion

By David Goe

After one of the most epic live music weekends ever it's time to gather your senses and get ready for another round. Kicking things off this week are the homegrown Americana foot stomping Spirit Family Reunion, playing live on Tuesday (4/23) at the Cavalcade in Fruita.

Spirit Family Reunion has grown a lot since busking on street corners and subway stations. The band has garnered quiet the following and are now making major tour stops at the Newport Folk Festival and NPR's  Tiny Desk Series (see below). I usually don't like quoting other media outlets but this line by Paste Magazine is just too good not to share.

"Dusty acoustic guitars, wailing fiddles and weeping accordions, with a woozy-yet-skintight rhythm section-- and topped off with burr-edged vocals that sound like they've been soaked in a Mason jar for generations -- it's the type of music that blurs the line between past and present so thoroughly, and so deftly, that time feels irrelevant." Well said. Reminds me of this article...

Catch Spirit Family Reunion and listen as they rekindle that old familiar feeling of home in your soul.
