Cut-to-heart folk rock sextet, Dustbowl Revival, are pleased to announce the dates and lineup for the next edition of their virtual music festival, Sway-at-Home.
The event will take place, virtually of course, Thursday, October 29 and Friday, October 30 on Dustbowl’s Facebook and YouTube pages; and will feature sets from the likes of Tim O’Brien, David Bromberg, Aubrie Sellers, Silvana Estrada, Oliver Wood (the Wood Brothers) and many more. Sway-at-Home will kick off at 3:30pm PT on each day.
“We started Sway-at-Home [way back] in April when we realized our group, and many of our touring friends’ groups, wouldn’t get to play music festivals during this hard and strange time,” shared Z. Lupetin of Dustbowl Revival. “Instead of despairing, we created something new, bringing artists and songwriters together in a way that only music gatherings can.
While Sway-at-Home is completely free to view, the Dustbowl team encourages both tips to the festival and artists themselves (whose information will appear on-screen during the fest), but also for viewers to consider donations to Color for Change and MusiCares.
“Music makes community, and I thank Dustbowl Revival for gathering us together, even if we have to watch a screen to do it” shared Sway-at-Home guest, Tim O’Brien. “I’m really excited to see friends like David Bromberg, Guy Davis, Oliver Wood, and the Mammals, but also to make new friends with folks like Silvana Estrada and Stay Wild. Life is worth living, so stay safe and make sure to vote!“
Outside of Sway-at-Home, Dustbowl Revival recently released their latest single, “Beside You,” a song recorded initially in part of the Is it You, Is it Me sessions.
“It’s been a dark year for many music lovers,” shared Z. “We hope this will lighten people’s spirits. It’s gonna be epic!”
Dustbowl Revival is composed of core members Z. Lupetin (lead vocals/guitar), Liz Beebe (lead vocals), Matt Rubin (trumpet/flugelhorn/keys), Ulf Bjorlin (trombones) and Josh Heffernan (drums/percussion).
