Today’s Pickathon playlist comes from none other than Ms. Joan Shelley, herself!
“I was stunned when I saw this lineup…I never imagined one festival could get all of these musicians in the same place. Some of them just released some of my favorite albums (The Weather Station), and some of them are about to (Freakwater). Some of them were names given to me by good friends with reliable taste (Ex Hex, Rodrigo Amarante, Jessica Pratt, Ryley Walker) and some of them I would trust musically until they played their last note (Tinariwen, Alice Gerrard, William Tyler, Sam Amidon, Nathan Bowles).
