The Avett Brothers fill the Amp with superb strumming, if not spectators

Published July 5, 2015

It shouldn't have come as a surprise to see the Marcus Amphitheater a maybe generous 50 percent full - albeit an extremely enthusiastic and appreciative 50 percent - on Saturday night for The Avett Brothers. But while the bluegrass folk rock band had apparent problems filling the venue with fans, the band had no problem whatsoever completely filling the venue with strong, soulful music on the Fourth of July.

Published June 27, 2015

The old-school folk group Punch Brothers tried something different and set their goals somewhere new Friday night at the BMO Harris Pavilion.

Lord Huron doesn't quite trek to the stars like it said it might on its new album "Strange Trails," but the folk band is still going places. Its dreamy musical vistas have nabbed a big audience -- so much so that demand moved the band's return to The Pabst Theater on Saturday, April 25 over to the Riverside. Before then, I got a chance to chat with frontman Ben Schneider about "Strange Trails," the stories that come with it and going to space (at some point).

Published Dec. 31, 2013

"Woody Sez," the story of folk hero Woody Guthrie and his fascist-killing musical machine, hits the Rep's Stackner Cabaret starting Friday night. The show is a passion project for David M. Lutken, its star, music director, choreographer and "co-devisor." OnMilwaukee.com got a chance to chat with Lutken to see what he has to say about "Woody Sez."
