Marley’s Ghost – The Woodstock Session

Veteran Americana collective Marley’s Ghost released their 11th album, The Woodstock Sessions,
on July 15th; for the last three decades, the band has been reinforcing
and solidifying the genre’s place in the music world, with prowess that
spans from roots to rock, from soulful gospel to country, and from
blues to bluegrass.

The band celebrated its 30th anniversary with the release of The Woodstock Sessions, helmed by Grammy-winning producer, Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award winner, master of all things stringed, (and Mother Church Pew hero) Larry Campbell, who has worked with countless artists, a roster which includes the likes of Bob Dylan and Levon Helm.
Recorded at the
legendary Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, New York, the album brims
with their signature multi-part harmonies and beautifully traditional
instrumentation; bookended with bluegrass-y foot-stompers, sprinkled
with zydeco-tinged two-steppers and gospel-infused heartstring-tuggers,
with a touch of swampy blues mixed in for good measure, this album
explores and celebrates every nuance ofthe greatness that is American
