AUDIO AND VIDEO PREMIERES: The Songs of Townes Van Zandt Vol III

With two volumes of the Songs of Townes Van Zandt already out there in the world, we’re delighted to be able to play a part in unveiling the third chapter. The first two albums featured John Baizley, Nate Hall, Mike Scheidt, Wino, Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till, giving an indicator of the pedigree of contributors. As for the third instalment? You’ll have to tune into Roadburn Redux to find out more…

Townes Van Zandt left a big impression on many of the artists that inhibit the Roadburn universe (all of those listed above have made an appearance or two on Roadburn stages over the years), and their reimaginings of the American folk hero’s songs have introduced a whole new swathe of fans to his music. Though many others – including Robert Plant and Bob Dylan – have paid tribute to Van Zandt by covering his songs, this album series particularly resonates within the Roadburn community.

With the third album on the horizon, we’re honoured to help unveil the musicians involved with this release by way of exclusive premieres from each artist involved. We’re sworn to secrecy for another few weeks, but we’re confident that this latest group of artists will continue the fine tradition started in 2012 with the release of the first volume.

Premieres from The Songs of Townes Van Zandt will be a part of Roadburn Redux, taking place between April 16-18.
