Great Peacock w/Andrew Leahey and the Homestead & Levi Weaver
Times, they are a-changin’. In recent decades, folk music has struck a sort of take-it-or-leave-it posture, one that was proudly insulated from the pop music trends blowin’ in the wind. But folkies of a certain stripe are clearly mustering mainstream momentum once again, kinda like they did during the folk revival of the late ’50s and early ’60s. So you’ve got a duo like Nashville’s Great Peacock making much of their musical shift from “angsty downer rock” — as Blount Floyd puts it in the band bio — to the updated rustic sentimentality of their recent self-titled EP. “The amps,” explains Floyd’s bandmate, Andrew Nelson, in that same bio, “had gotten too loud.” Beyond the tidy PR angle, the two of them really do have the chops to pull off warm-hearted roots-pop. They’re joined on this bill by still-plugged-in, Petty-digging heartland rockers Andrew Leahey and the Homestead, who have a new EP of their own out titled Summer Sleeves, and introspective crooner Levi Weaver, who’s currently knee-deep in a Pledge Music campaign.
