Every year, the Americana Music Association descends upon Nashville, Tenn. for a music festival to celebrate the accomplishment and further the creative spirit of the genre. Vanguard Records and Sugar Hill Records had several of their artists sit for a series of intimate performances at Minutia Studios while they were in town for the event.
You can watch two clips from the series exclusively in the players below: one with 21-year-old bluegrass sweetheart Sarah Jarosz and one with Los Angeles singer-songwriter Brian Wright. If you like what you hear, you can head over to the project’s Noisetrade page for a full sampler download of tracks like these. Keep your eyes (and ears) open for more videos from the AMA Festival in the coming weeks.
