Marty StuartMarty Stuart is a country music marvel. Born in Philadelphia, Mississippi, a musical wonder boy, he toured with Lester Flatt as a teenager in the 1970s, spent six years in Johnny Cash's band in the 1980s, and went on to become a Grand Ole Opry star, winning five Grammy awards, as well as awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association and the Americana Music Association. "Marty Stuart lives and breathes country music," says the website Country Standard Time. He "simply makes great country music the old fashion way, and for that we have a lot be thankful for, once again, from country's foremost renaissance man." In the liner notes to his 2012 album, Nashville, Volume 1: Tear the Woodpile Down, Marty writes, "Today the most outlaw thing you can possibly do in Nashville, Tennessee, is play country music." He's not only an outlaw, he¹s also a country music archivist, Southern culture historian, photographer, TV show host, country music fan, and charismatic force of nature!


He has a new double album ready to go, Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, half hard-driving honky tonk, half gospel, with the Staples Singers helping out on the gospel tracks. Joining him at the Freight will be his aptly named band, The Fabulous Superlatives, featuring three superlatively fabulous musicians, Harry Stinson on drums, Paul Martin on bass, and Kenny Vaughan on guitar. Marty, says musicologist Peter North, "has without question evolved into one of the most important roots musicians and visionaries in America." He's not just important ­ he¹s irresistibly entertaining and flat out great!


San Francisco¹s Maurice Tani has been a fixture on the local alt-country scene for more than a decade with his band 77 El Deora. The San Francisco Chronicle has praised his "twangy modern country sound" and called his songs "wry yet romantic, tender but aggressive." Maurice recently released two albums—a studio recording with 77 El Deora called Blue Line, and Two Stroke, a collection of acoustic duos with his bassist, Mike Anderson. The website No Depression calls the sound "hillbilly noir" ­ "at once familiar, ethereal and beautiful." Maurice calls it "cinema for the blind." His music paints vivid pictures of the darker side of human relationships ­ but even at its darkest, it swings.
