Foolish Philosophy Artists Showcase @ Woody Fest 15

S'far as big deals go, WoodyFest is as big as deals get in Oklahoma. Four days of non-stop music featuring more than 100 of Americana, folk and country music's most authentic performers celebrating the legacy of the man who wrote the book on keeping it real, Woody Guthrie. Foolish Philosophy is proud that all three of our flagship artists, Kyle Reid, John Calvin Abney and Travis Linville will be on hand to perform.

Travis hits the road with Hayes Carll

Travis Linville hits the road with Hayes Carll for a string of 16 shows all over the United States. You can see a full listing of shows here on the FP website. It is kind of incomprehensible to us that you may not know who Hayes is already but, on the off-chance that you are one of those Flemish-speaking Belgians, here's a video (not in Flemish) of these two boys getting down such as they are inclined to do.

ROUNDUP - John Calvin Abney's Better Luck

John Calvin Abney's debut record, Better Luck has gotten a lot of love from critics since its release in January 2015.

No Depression's Scott Huppardo finds Abney's transformation from sideman to songwriter altogether convincing, noting that "this is the accomplished wing man sliding into the starring role, his own skin in the game."

He describes the record as "landscapes of sounds and instruments put together seamlessly, complete with heady, deeply personal lyrics."
