Wailin’ Wednesday: Top 10 Folk Fest Songs of Summer
We’re starting a new blog series called Wailin’ Wednesday – a weekly round-up of folk related news, music and folkin’ good reads.
Instead of letting this chilly fall weather get us down, let’s reminisce about the summer that was and the festival that brought us together. What better way to do that than with a musical trip down memory lane!
In no particular order, here are ten of the biggest songs that we heard at Folk Fest – the summer anthems that have been jammed around bonfires, blasted out of car radios and played poolside on those hot August afternoons.
Shovels and Rope “The Devil is All Around”
Shakey Graves “Dearly Departed”
Hurray for the Riff Raff “I Know It’s Wrong (But That’s Alright)”
The Strumbellas “Sailing”
Mexican Institute of Sound “Mexico”
Reuben and the Dark "Rolling Stone"
Sharon Van Etten “Every Time the Sun Comes Up”
Boy & Bear “Harlequin Dream”
Old Man Canyon “Phantoms & Friends”
And finally, the song that was playing in everyone’s head for months, Langhorne Slim & The Law’s “The Way We Move”
Stay tuned for more fun from next week's Wailin' Wednesday post!
