Ollabelle came together because of these musicians’ love of this music, without thought of success or career or any of the other trappings of the modern professional music business. It has great value to our culture, adding new life to a tradition that is an important part of who we are. But mostly, they sound great. They sing great and they play great, and they are wonderful people.’ So says T-Bone Burnett, and we are inclined to agree, since we’ve hosted Ollabelle several times. They play roots music while sounding contemporary; down-home sounds with the sexiness of the big city. www.ollabelle.net.
