The Folk, Americana and Alt-Country Shows We’re Most Excited to See at SXSW 2015
If there's one thing we can all agree on when it comes to SXSW, it's that there is a little bit -- or sometimes, a lot -- of something for everyone. From hip-hop and electronica to indie and mainstream rock, there will be countless performances at venues all over Austin, Texas, that will appeal to every single musical fiber of your being.
Part of our musical fabric, among many other genres, is folk, Americana and alternative country. It's an always-growing environment with burgeoning musicians finding a place amongst heritage acts, and it seems to be enjoying a revitalization of sorts in the past few years. Fortunately for us, SXSW will be highlighting all sorts of artists from every walk of life that fit the mold of what folk, Americana and alt-country can sound like in 2015.
