Upcoming Releases: Martha Scanlan - The West Was Burning
Martha Scanlan's hauntingly beautiful vocals and the poetic imagery of her songwriting were cornerstones of the Reeltime Travelers, one of the most popular old-time string bands in recent years, and a favorite on the Bus.
Martha’s first solo release, The West Was Burning, was produced by Dirk Powell and features Powell as well as Levon Helm and members of the band Ollabelle. A few years ago Martha Scanlan won first and second place in the Bluegrass and Country songwriting competition at MerleFest with her songs "Little Bird of Heaven" and "Hallelujah".
The West Was Burning is scheduled to be on store shelves February 13th or can be ordered from Sugar Hill Records.
Martha is currently touring, check her Tour Schedule.
If you'll be in Virginia on March 4th, join us at her show in Charlottesville at Gravity Lounge.
