A Tribute to John Prine at the me and thee
For the Sake of the Song is a Boston-based concert series and traveling roadshow which features an ever-changing mixture of some of the Northeast's best songwriters and bands, collaborating to perform music from and inspired by their greatest influences. The series, which takes its name from the classic Townes Van Zandt song, delivers the intimacy and energy of great late night jam sessions as well as an illustrative peak into the songwriting process of a wide range of contemporary artists.
The musicians taking part in this tribute are Patrick Coman, who founded For the Sake of the Song, and The Meadows Brothers.
Patrick Coman is a fixgture of Boston's vibrant roots music scene as a performer, organizer of the New England Americana Festival and For the Sake of the Song series, and as the host of Local Folk on Boston's Americana radio station, WUMB. Coman has made much of his six years in the Northeast, but it doesn't quite yet feel like home. An Okie from just north of Muskogee, Patrick grew up under the spell of his hometown's famed Tulsa Sound. Equal parts red dirt, blues, rock, soul, and country.
The Meadows Brothers
The Meadows Brothers' (Ian, 23 & Dustin, 21) distinct brand of roots music draws inspiration from a huge list of influences, combining folk, blues, country and rock 'n' roll into what the Boston Globe calls An engagingly twangy sibling sound all their own. Known for their blood harmonies, unsweetened songwriting, expressive guitars and bluesy harp, the brothers have played hundreds of shows all over their native New England, the Midwest and Great Lakes regions, and down the Eastern seaboard while continuing to hone their craft. Their last album release, Wont Be Troubled, demonstrates the brothers' keen ability to really rock in addition to the more mellow harmonies that they most are noted for. Sean Lynch (WSBU) says: With vivid storytelling, each track becomes a journey to a different place. The guitars feed off each other and the vocals pair together perfectly during the harmonies.
