Winter's Bone Tour to bring meth-addled mountain music to the masses

The team of musicians who produced the stark, mournful Americana soundtrack to last year’s Winter’s Bone—like O Brother Where Art Thou? for the suicidal—are putting their somber show on the road, bringing their take on the musical traditions of the Ozarks to over two-dozen towns full of city-folk. The Blackberry Winter Band (vocalist Marideth Sisco, Western Swing guitarist Dennis Crider, bluegrass musician Bo Brown, banjo-picker Van Colbert, upright bassist Tedi May, and “Appalachian song stylist Linda Stoffel”) will embark on their first-ever North American tour on May 20, spreading the sound of oppressed people like Ashley Judd all over this land of ours.
