During the Prohibition, underground bars called "speakeasies" popped up in cities around the country. These gathering places were the primary breeding ground for what we now know as popular music and can best be used to associate the fusion of sounds that make up Newworldson.

Newworldson plays "speakeasy gospel...."It's part gospel, a little soul, and all kinds of North American roots music.

It's garbed in a unique blend of guitar, bass, horns, keys and drums, bol- stered by universal truths that can live anywhere... a church, barroom, arena stage, or corner club.


Michael English

Most people aspire to normalcy and arrive at complacency. Most people reach comfortable and, for better or worse, decide to stay.

Michael English isn't most people, for every once in a while, a voice comes along that rises above the great into a level all its own. Michael will always be one of those voices.

Come hear it at the festival!
