Thu. Apr 04, 2013 Would you describe Howe Gelb as prolific?
By Pickathon  
Over the past 35 years Howe Gelb has remained an isolated yet active artist, consistently releasing new material, and always going his own way while forging a path as a recognized American composer and songwriter. Whether it be solo (with or without Piano), as Giant Sand (or Giant Giant Sand, Giant Sandworms), with The Band of Gypsies, The Band of... Blacky Ranchette, Arizona Amp and Alternator, Melted Wires, or any of the other official or unofficial collaborations.. It is easy to see that Howe has put out more recordings than any other songwriter within the last 40 or so years. For evidence, just look at his catalog at the Howe Gelb Website.

Seriously, you could start listening today, beginning in the late '70's, and work your way to present and it is likely that you'd not make it through his entire catalog by the time we see him at this years festival.

Lucky for us, we'll see Howe and band on both Saturday and Sunday at this years Pickathon, expected at this time to land on The Woods Stage and Starlight Stage. That's 120 minutes of Howe, which for new fans will be a great start...
