Harry Belafonte's first album features a solid variety of songs from American folk tradition, learned during his studies of folk music at the Library of Congress in the early 1950s. He had signed with RCA Victor in 1952, recording a series of well-received singles. Belafonte's new-found love for music of the West Indies can be found in songs such as "Man Piaba" (which he wrote) along with songs from English and Scottish tradition such as "Lord Randall" and "The Drummer & the Cook." Songs from African-American tradition include the chain gang song "Tol' My Captain" and the ubiquitous "John Henry." Mark Twain was a good initial effort, but Belafonte's repertoire and delivery would get stronger with the next album.

In America the golden season for music festivals ended up in late '69 with the Altamont's accidents, a few months after Woodstock. In the early seventies in Europe there was still space for some "good vibrations", as proved by the Kralingen Pop festival, near Rotterdam, on June 1970. The event, documented by the movie Stamping Ground, is often remembered as the European Woodstock, because of the presence of many artists that had already played on that historical three-days concert, like Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Canned Heat, Country Joe. But the Kralingen festival also showed how vital was the British scene on that period, offering great perfomances by bands like Pink Floyd, Soft Machine, East Of Eden, Caravan, Fairport Convention, Family, T. Rex…

Trinidad "Trini" López III is an American singer, guitarist, and actor. Initially receiving very little success, Lopez landed a steady engagement at the nightclub PJ's. He was heard there by Frank Sinatra, who had started his own label, Reprise Records, and who subsequently signed Lopez. His debut live album, Trini Lopez At PJ's, was released in 1963, & his career took off from that point. Many of the tracks are folk music songs. The cover shows Lopez with his Barney Kessel guitar, outside the nightclub. The album includes a cover of "If I Had a Hammer", which reached number one in 36 countries (No. 3 in the United States). It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. Lopez also performs a version of the traditional Mexican song "La Bamba". This version was later re-issued as a single in 1966.

Since releasing their debut album The Chase back in 2013, Montreal indie folk pop band Groenland are returning with their sophomore effort A Wider Space on September 16th, 2016. After two years of touring in support of The Chase, Groenland regrouped and hit a more personal and intimate level of songwriting for the new album. A first look into A Wider Spaces comes in the form of the lead single Healing Suns . Colourful, synth-pop melodies mixed with a touch of jazz, and the band s signature orchestral arrangements makes the new single irresistible, giving A Wider Space a strong first step forward. Although the song is drenched in colour and a contagious energy, its meaning originates from a darker place, as the band explains: Healing Suns is a song that represents the rediscovery of our own light after a long period of doubt. But as the sun rises on their re-structured confidence, the band returns to their warm-spirited nature and songwriting.

The musical poles Nashville and Los Angeles could hardly be further apart. And yet, it fits the unusual vita of Lesley Kernochan that the artist from the city of angels has recorded her album "A Calm Sun" in the country Mecca. This follows an a cappella work, a song collection that combines Americana, folk, rock, jazz and pop, as well as a release for children who have been awarded the Parent's Choice Gold Award. On the 14 quite varied songs of "A Calm Sun", Kernochan is always in the center with her four octaves-wide voice, which needs comparisons with Dolly Parton, Eleni Mandell or Gillian Welch. Her contributions to the piano and guitar round off the Who is who of the Nashville scene.
