The Revival Tour is a collaboration folk music event, initiated by Chuck Ragan – who you may recall from this book.
“There’s no hierarchy; it’s about sharing music together and bringing it to people in an extremely honest and grassroots fashion,” he explains, adding that the musicians on the tour all open the show together, join each other throughout the event and close it with a grand finale all together again. “It’s apparent that simple songs of folk music has been rising in popularity and it’s a joy to bring known artists that people already love but very important to us to expose lesser known artists to the world who play exemplary music and live by ethics we admire whether they’re solo musicians, groups or a singer of a band.” – The Revival Tour
This years Revival Tour consisted of Cory Branan, Emily Barker, Jay Malinowski, Rocky Votolato and, of course, Mr Chuck Ragan. Plus Jon Gaunt and Joe Ginsberg on fiddle and bass.
