The Wild Ones
Sunday, March 30, 2014
MOTR Pub, 1345 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati, Ohio; 513-381-6687
free, ages 21-up, 9pm
In late 2012, Wild Ones was on the verge of collapse. Guitarist Clayton Knapp had blown out an eardrum, the band’s original drummer left the group and his replacement, Seve Sheldon, was in the hospital with a punctured lung, practicing songs on a drum pad with a tube sticking out of his chest. The band’s members had funneled all of their money into a debut record, Keep It Safe, that had taken a year to write and nine months to record and mix. Fans and followers began to wonder if that record would ever see the light of day. It was make-or-break time. Wild Ones made. Instead of folding in the face of financial drama, injuries and personnel changes, Wild Ones took a deep breath and adjusted to its new surroundings. This band is used to adjusting. Since its formation in 2010, Wild Ones has insisted on operating as a DIY collective. Read more

The 2014 John Hartford Memorial Festival (JHMF) Songwriting Contest has begun accepting entries, marking the start of its second year inspiring songwriters to go where they haven’t gone before. The songwriting contest is a little different than most, as it takes part in ensuring the legacy of John Hartford continues and thrives. Contest winners are awarded with a main stage performance and free 3-day festival ticket.
Many great songwriters have come and gone, but few have been groundbreaking trendsetters. John Hartford started a movement in music and this festival is a great example of the wake that has spread across the vast ocean of what we have come to call Americana music. The bands selected to perform at JHMF are encouraged to play a Hartford song or talk about his inspiration on them. Read more

David Mayfield Parade
David Mayfield Parade
April 9, 2013
Southgate House Revival, 111 E 6th St, Newport, KY
$7 adv, $9 dos, 7 pm doors, 8 pm show, 18+
He’s one of the most energetic, enigmatic, entertaining and beloved performers in Americana circles, and now David Mayfield is set to release Good Man Down on April 1, after originally being scheduled for October 2012. Good Man Down is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut, David Mayfield Parade (January 2011) and Mayfield’s rabid fan base helped to fund the release through a wildly successful KickStarter campaign. The album also boasts special guests such as Seth Avett (of the Avett Brothers), country star Dierks Bentley, and legendary bluegrass icons Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver.
Mayfield, who has toured pretty much nonstop for the two years since the release of his debut, including stints with his sister, Jessica Lea Mayfield, good friends The Avett Brothers, and Mumford & Sons, has had the opportunity to gauge fan interest in his new material, but he is also excited to have had the time to develop the songs.
