Bonesstock 2016!

Bonesstock 2016!

 There is a gratuitous amount of music going on all around us. We're knee-deep in festival season, and amidst the giant events that dot the American landscape every summer, smaller local and regional gatherings provide a more intimate setting for some quality tunes. With that in mind, Bonesstock 2016 is this weekend!

Frontman Rick Sherry of Devil in a Woodpile was kind enough to take a few minutes and answer from questions:
 
AH: How would you describe your music to someone who's never heard it?
RS: We play foot stompin' old acoustic music from the 20s to the 40s. No amplifiers, often no microphones....we do not play bluegrass, but are often mislabeled as such. The 'catch' genre-ish descriptor I find that works best is 'Have you seen 'Oh Brother Where Art Thou?'
AH: Where can fans find your tunes?
RS: We recorded three CDs for Bloodshot Records....the first two might be 'out of print'.
AH: Are you working on any new material?
RS: We've got enough tunes we play that we haven't recorded, but haven't put much effort into figuring out the when/how for making another recording.
AH: What are a few of your sources of inspiration?
RS: I listen to a lot of old stuff, but I can't listen to too much of one genre all the time....we are very influenced by the stuff recorded for Bluebird in the 30s to 40s.
AH: What's your main are of operations?
RS: We play every week at The Hideout. Also play pretty regularly at Lagunitas Chicago Taproom and at Honky Tonk Barbeque.
AH: Anybody cool in particular that you've toured with?
RS: We are not a 'touring' band! We often backed up Honeyboy Edwards, and I did a bit of touring with Honeyboy myself (most always without the other Devil guys). Son Volt had us support them a bunch way back in the early 2000s! 'Twas very cool!
 
If you're in the CU this weekend, be at Bonesstock at the Iron Post! Last year was a rip-roaring success, and I can't wait for a full day of thumping jugs, xylophones, kazoos, ragtime, and so much more, plus craft beers and hot food. I look forward to seeing you all there!
