With summer into full swing, music festivals seem to have carved out a season all for themselves. The Farmington Dew Days Festival played host to The Plott Hounds on Friday night. The band brought their love for playing true Americana Rock & Roll to the crowded venue and pulled off a flawless 4 hours of music. The three sets combined an excellent mix of new tracks from their upcoming album ‘Living Free’, which will be releasing in early July, and a selection of covers. Some of the covers where one’s I’ve never heard The Plott Hounds play before, and were as impressive as their rendition of ‘Sweet Home Alabama’. It was a cool twist in keeping their set fresh. In kicking off their initial set, The Plott Hounds threw a quick curve ball having bassist Shea Marana take center stage with harmonica. The reaction from the crowd was awesome and immediately engaged as the set continued. Carla, a Farmington local who was in the crowd, commented “They are so amazing. The original songs are great and I just pre-ordered their album a minute ago”.
Even with a nice breeze running across the festival, the venue stayed smoking hot with great music, passionate set performances, and a foot-stomping good time. The Plott Hounds nailed it and the folks in Farmington were there to see (and hear) it all.
The Plott hounds album ‘Living Free’ is available for pre-order on iTunes. At $7.99, the album is a steal!
