Cosmic Cowboy Revival and what is Americana Music.
CCR is a band that performs Americana music. The best way I can explain Americana music is that it combines rock, country, and bluegrass. What gives it away is normally no electric guitars, electric keyboards or horns but includes amplified acoustic guitars, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, Dobro, drums and bass. Some current examples are Steve n' Seagulls, Dead South, The Cleverlys, Hayseed Dixie and Goodnight Texas.
The genre first began to be formalized in the late 1990's at the famous South by Southwest festival in Austin Texas. Out of that came the Americana Music Association whose festival and convention has now grown by 2008 to a four day event in the Ryman Auditorium (the old Grand Old Opry). In 2009 the Recording Academy added Americana as a musical category.
CCR consists of Joann Ritter (vocals, guitar), Tom Haller (vocals, bass), Bob Marwick (vocals, drums), and B.K. Andersen (vocals, guitar, Dobro, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica).
Cosmic Cowboy Revival & Neil Young Tribute
Welcome to two great music performances on this website. Their common link is B.K.Andersen who performs in both CCR and the Neil Young Tribute.
Neil Young Tribute
the Martin acoustical guitar or the electric guitar with extreme distortion.
B.K. performs all the songs with the Martin but sometimes adds a little bass
and drums effects in the sparingly style of Tim Drummond and Kenny Buttery
from the Harvest and other albums. Also uses backup vocal effects of James
Taylor and Linda Ronstadt, once again like on the Harvest album.
