Solid americana added to Roskilde Festival 2013 line-up

Calexico, Frank Fairfield and Jonathan Wilson join our line-up

Even though today’s bands have all been grown from the fertile soil of American roots music, they each approach tradition from their own unique and groundbreaking angle.

CALEXICO (US) have combined country with Mexican mariachi music on their previous border–crossing albums, but on their latest effort, 2012’s Algiers, the two gringos headed for the west bank of the Mississippi in sprawling New Orleans. The result of that trip is a colorful album that most certainly called for the band’s return to Roskilde Festival.

FRANK FAIRFIELD (US) more or less spent his life as a hobo, until he was finally discovered by the right people to see his potential and talent. These days, he’s touring with the Fleet Foxes, and making acclaimed records filled with heartbreak, whisky, inevitable poverty and the ever imminent stock market crash. Frank Fairfield tops his authentic americana with plenty of banjo and fierce fiddlin’.

JONATHAN WILSON (US) plays the kind of country rock where the psychedelic colors and shapes of late 60s California blend together. Yet at the same time, Wilson is so contemporary in his songwriting that fans of modern folk rock should be sure  check him out as well. The talented musician and songwriter also enjoys a career as a session player for legends such as Jackson Brown and The Band’s Robbie Robertson.
