Ahead of this week’s Stopover Music Festival in Savannah, we add another couple of tunes to our Georgia Playlist.
“The singer has this effortless swagger that he puts into what he's saying. Even if you can't really make out the words, you believe him no matter what." - Trey Rosenkampff of Chief Scout about the lead singer of Balkans.
Trey Rosenkampff of the Athens-based group Chief Scout picks songs by Atlanta band Balkans and Athens’ Of Montreal.
Last week's trip to Cuba was historic for Barack Obama. He's the first American president to visit the country in almost a hundred years, and another American racked up a first in Cuba over the weekend. Georgia musician Chuck Leavell performed with the Rolling Stones in Havana on Friday.
