Radio Bristol Premieres new music from Folk Soul Revival during an intimate album release concert in the Performance Theater at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum on August 31. The concert is sold out, but you don’t have to miss the performance! You may view the show on Radio Bristol’s Facebook Live, or tune in to the station for a listen.
“We are thrilled to host Folk Soul Revival for their album release show,” said Radio Bristol host and producer Kris Truelsen. “What a better way to experience the new record than to hear it live! We urge fans to join us on Radio Bristol’s Facebook page that evening and be part of the live chat during the concert. Let us know what you think of the new album and where you’re watching from!”
A modern band rooted in old-school southern sounds, Folk Soul Revival whips up its own version of amplified Americana on the band’s self-titled fourth record. The album is already achieving critical acclaim in the music press and has reached #45 on the Americana Radio Albums Chart.
The name says it all – Folk Soul Revival. Like the band that created it, the album celebrates the sounds, stories, and small-town values of an earlier era while modernizing their approach with sharp songwriting and electrifying instrumental work. There’s country twang, bluegrass bounce, hillbilly hell-raising, chicken-pickin’ guitar, and roadhouse roots-rock, all sandwiched into a track list that mixes heartbreak, honesty, and humor in equal doses. Recorded in Nashville and road-tested on stages across the country, this is Folk Soul Revival’s finest work – an album that nods to the glory days of the past while still pushing the band forward.
The Birthplace of Country Music (BCM – the parent nonprofit of Radio Bristol, the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, and the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival), in partnership with the Virginia Tourism Corporation, will bring three Virginia based acts to The Long Road: A Festival of Country, Americana, & Roots in Leicestershire, England September 7-9 – Folk Soul Revival will be among them, along with singer-songwriters Dori Freeman and Andrew Alli.
A favorite act at Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, Folk Soul is also scheduled to perform at the 18th annual event in Historic Downtown Bristol, VA-TN on Saturday, September 22nd.
