By L. Kent Wolgamott
“Relationship, family — the last two years of my life has been a lot of family. … Having kids has affected me,” DiFranco said. “It’s not in that classic way — ‘Now I need to worry about the future, environmental apocalypse, whoa, eternal warfare, whoa.’ I was always on that tip.

Wail

In 2002, three solo musicians were thrown together for what was supposed to be a one-time performance. As fate had it, the chemistry was too ample to ignore, and the ladies went on to form The Wailin’ Jennys. The band started in Canada, but since has expanded their audience throughout the world.

Rare pleasures

Takacs Quartet will play a piece of Beethoven you probably have never heard before

Sometimes I forget I’m heavily tattooed,” singer Lola Black says. “Every now and then I’ll walk by a mirror and think, ‘Oh wow, that’s quite a bit.’ I don’t realize I have that many.” As lead vocalist of the Denver-based hard rock/metal band also named Lola Black, her presence can be intimidating. On stage, her black hair is piled high on top of her head while she belts out her lyrics in high heels and a black ensemble. The seemingly endless colorful tattoos make her appearance even louder. Simply put, Black commands attention.

Houndmouth’s creation was a matter of the right place at the right time. The band, hailing from southern Indiana, started off as loose friends, each with a different musical background — a mix of blues, Motown, acoustic, classic rock and bluegrass. Houndmouth’s music lies in that sweet spot between alternative, country and folk.
