Hurray For The Riff Raff, Live In Concert: Newport Folk 2013
The New Orleans band Hurray for the Riff Raff exists as a vehicle for the powerhouse songs of singer-songwriter Alynda Lee Segarra, whose gigantic voice conveys the grit of bluesy soul while still fitting within the realms of rootsy folk and country. The group just followed its dynamite 2012 album Look Out Mama with a Kickstarter-funded collection of covers (and two originals) called My Dearest Darkest Neighbor.
Hear Hurray for the Riff Raff perform as part of the 2013 Newport Folk Festival, recorded live on Saturday, July 27 in Newport, R.I.
