Chris Pandolfi

Feb. 12, 2021

Chris Panfolfi is the banjo player in The Infamous Stringdusters, but his latest solo project is a little different than what you'd come to expect from this newgrass stalwart. It fuses Chris' passion and playing of the banjo with his penchant for production. In all, it's a fascinating listen one th…

Horseshoes And Hand Grenades

Nov. 13, 2020

If this pandemic, and the general malaise of 2020 has taught me anything, it is to be prepared for just about anything. So when word broke earlier this week that we would be getting some new music from Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, sooner rather than later, I was psyched to hook up with Adam Greuel…

Steep Canyon Rangers

Oct. 29, 2020

Grammy award winning Steep Canyon Rangers recently released their first album of 2020 Arm in Arm. I say that somewhat tongue and cheek, because this latest release follows two great releases in 2019 North Carolina Songbook and Be Still Moses. The album which was recorded over several days at the So…

Andy Hall

Oct. 15, 2020

Many years ago I saw Jerry Douglas play here in Toronto with the Derek Trucks Band and I was completely mesmerized by the tone of the dobro and the way in which Jerry commanded the instrument. Since then I’ve had the good fortune of seeing Andy Hall and Anders Beck play live and obviously on tape a…

Wood And Wire

Aug. 30, 2020

Wood & Wire are a special kind of bluegrass band, who stretch the boundaries of what they do beyond typical bluegrass music. Sure there are others that do the same, but Wood & Wire offer something more unique in terms of song structure and style. I suspect that even if you weren’t a typical bluegra…

The Ghost of Paul Revere

Aug. 27, 2020

Good at Losing Everything is the latest album from The Ghost of Paul Revere, a great band out of Maine, that we absolutely adore. They are a little bit holler folk, straight ahead folk, but mostly good ole' rock n roll, and frankly that's why we love them so. The title track, and the entire album e…

Molly Tuttle

Aug. 20, 2020

Molly Tuttles surprise covers album ...but I'd rather be with you drops today. We caught up with the singer songwriter, to talk about the record, and much more.

Torrin of The Kitchen Dwellers

Aug. 15, 2020

The struggle for band’s to make a living in the time of COVID-19 has been well documented. So we’re not going to mention it again. Instead we’re going to celebrate a band like the Kitchen Dwellers who have been very active putting out an EP, doing some live streaming and performing live for small g…

"On The Road" A Tribute To John Hartford with Chad Staehly

June 18, 2020

On June 26th, LoHi records will be releasing On the Road: A tribute to John Hartford. For the uninitiated John, a musician, and a bonafide artist, was a genre bending genius who many credit for planting the seeds of the current jamgrass movement, and what many consider Americana music. His accompli…

While he makes his residency in Nashville, this prolific singer-songwriter who’s resume speaks for itself still has a vast network of friends and family back all over the Carolinas and more specifically in North Carolina. His latest release, When Ca…

Casey Houlihan from Trout Steak Revival

Feb. 15, 2020

We've been following the career of Trout Steak Revival for quite some time, and while they've gone through some personnel changes and the like, as all bands do, the band has matured a great deal through their five records. What has remained constant though for this string band is their insistence t…

Kellen of Fruition

Jan. 13, 2020

It feels like I just spoke to Mimi Naja from Fruition about the release of Wild as the Night. Turns out, my memory is spot on, because we spoke to her November 8th. At the time, I thought the record, was one of the best of 2019 and kind of left things at that. Well, we were all surprised I think, e…
