String Theory

For eight years Hot Buttered Rum String Band (HBRSB) has refined its Newgrass sound to incorporate an amalgamation of styles and genres. Based around the traditional acoustic string set-up (and with the somewhat recent addition of a drummer), HBRSB paints on a bluegrass canvas with a folk, rock, reggae and jazz palette. And while the band owes a nod to contemporaries like String Cheese Incident...

For almost two decades Brulé has offered enchanting, live musical performances influenced by rock, jazz, and most importantly Native American culture. The haunting flute melodies, thundering drums and powerful chanting, combined with dazzling traditional dances, showcase the elements of Lakota culture that influenced Brulé founder Paul LaRoche.

No. 300

<p>Joe Krown Trio </p>Full Of Giving

This is the final weekend of benefit activities for the seventh annual Lash LaRue Toy Drive for the children of the Pine Ridge Reservation.

Music Issue 2010: Brothers In Amps

How important is the work of Mike and AJ Mogis? The brothers have been involved with every significant indie music recording produced in Nebraska for the past 20 years. It’s that simple. Along with Saddle Creek Records (which they were involved in creating), their studio work is a common denominator that runs through the entire story of Nebraska’s rise as an internationally known hub for...
