Indie fans are sure to delight in the gritty yet reflective sound of Gregory Alan Isakov. The folk artist will headline the Fayetteville Roots Festival on Saturday, August 25th during what promises to be a fun-filled day of food, music, and more.
Gregory Alan Isakov’s music captures America’s scenic ruralism and working class ethos. His style can be reminiscent of the tortured desolateness heard from Woody Guthrie, but it can also be calming like the music of his contemporary Iron and Wine.
Isakov has released several albums since his first solo effort, Rust Colored Stones, debuted in 2003. In 2007, the artist won the Telluride Troubadour Competition and the Westword Competition for Best Singer/Songwriter. The Empty Northern Hemisphere came out in 2009 and helped him gain a cult following along with wider publicity as his song “Big Black Car” was featured in a 2012 McDonald’s commercial. Isakov was signed on to Suitcase Town Music and in 2013 he released his heavily anticipated fifth album The Weatherman. The revered folk artist’s next album will debut in October 2018.
Isakov will perform at the Fayetteville Roots Festival on Saturday, August 25th at 7:00 p.m. The Fayetteville Roots Festival is a five-day, intimate, urban music and food festival taking place August 22-26, 2018 in Northwest Arkansas. The Roots Festival is a showcase of many of the elements that make the Fayetteville community and Northwest Arkansas region a beloved cultural hot spot.
