One of the discoveries I made during the Newport Folk Festival was The David Wax Museum. I had heard of them before, but I hadn't spent time with their music. David Wax and Suz Slezak formed the band in Boston. The music is eclectic, with a blend of Mexican roots and country folk music. I was especially drawn to them when I watched their concert, because they absolutely emanate joy when they are performing. They are a band that I'm sure is best appreciated live, so check out the links below to some live performances. That said, I'm really enjoying their latest CD, entitled Everything is Saved.
Listen to their concert at the Newport Folk Festival.
