Jonny Grave – Hill Country Blues

We’ve run quite a lot of traditional music videos on the Hometown Sounds site, and it’s nice every once in a while to show you something a little different. Today we’ve got a short musical introduction to Jonny Grave, preservationist of Hill Country Blues music. Directed by local filmmaker Hantz, the video mixes musical snippets of Grave performing and recording his original tunes with an interview detailing his approach to music. Grave’s new album The Hammer drops very soon, and tonight he plays a benefit show for One Fund Boston at Iota with a huge local lineup including The Highballers, Wes Tucker, South Rail, Rachel Levitin, Flo Anito and Matt Tarka. And you’ve got another chance to see him perform live next week with Alex Culbreth at the Wonderland Ballroom’s Outlaw Night on Thursday May 9th.
