Friday, March 1st was a pretty special night for the Music Savage gang as we got to spend an evening with two Newport Folk Festival alumni in downtown Boston. Two of our favorite Anti- Records artists shared some shows together for a few days and we were lucky enough on this chilly night to have them stop in our area to warm our hearts and souls with brilliant music for a few hours at City Winery. First up this evening was Asheville, North Carolina-based musician Christopher Paul Stelling whose fourth studio album (the second for ANTI-), Itinerant Arias, was released…

Fair warning however, once you have attended you will find yourself comparing a Christopher Paul Stelling concert to all…
