Hurray For The Riff Raff, Live In Concert: Newport Folk Festival '13

Alynda lee Segarra of Hurray For The Riff Raff is IMHO one of the most powerfully poignant singer/songwriters of this young century. After leaving home at an early age to travel the country, she eventually settled in New Orleans where she began to perform and record with a revolving cast of musicians.
She released two records (2008’s It Don’t Mean I Don’t Love You and 2010’s Young Blood Blues) mostly consisting of delicate folk and country songs. In 2011, the UK record label Loose Music (Felice Brothers, Dawes, Deer Tick), released Hurray for the Riff Raff, an album that collected the best songs from those records.The Times of London named Hurray for the Riff Raff one of the Top Ten Albums of 2011, NPR names them one of the new faces of Folk, I’m glad their catching on.
On July 1st '13 they released one of the best covers albums you’re ever likely to hear, “My Dearest Darkest Neighbor” with Mod Mobilian Records and This Is American Music.
On July 27th they took they’re rootsy folk and country sound and wowed the crowds at Newport Folk Festival. Listen and grab the full set.
