Son Volt
World Financial Center Plaza, 7:00pm
River to River Festival

Mining America?s history ? past and, especially, present ? for source material, Son Volt?s front man Jay Farrar blends beautiful, quiet and often stark acoustic songs with noisy, searing country-punk-flavored rock songs. His work often seeks out the ghosts of America?s discordant or forgotten past. He converses at length with them, and writes songs that stake claim to a better future.
