Past song of the week / September 2015

"Somewhere in the Middle"

From the album Somewhere in the Middle

Featured track, available from September 10 to September 18

There's still plenty of live music to be had in the glorious outdoors as we get ready to say goodbye to summer. The Harvest Moon Festival is set to celebrate its 14th festival with a diverse lineup of local bands September 18-20, including indie rockers, brass bands, surf rock rivalists, and singer/songwriters. One of the emerging acts joining the fun is BARTA, aka the singing and songwriting talents of Ashlee Bart, who debuted her new album Somewhere In The Middle in May. Produced by The Bros. Landreth's Ariel Posen with acclaimed producer Don Benedictson, the album brings BARTA's signature blend of folk, bluegrass, and country, featuring some familiar musical names like banjo virtuoso Allison de Groot, bassist Quintin Bart, and guitarist Lindsey Bart. Next up, BARTA will hit the road for a tour of Manitoba in January. Meanwhile, we've got the title track off BARTA's album for you as this week's feature download. Get the song, get your mittens on Harvest Moon tickets while you can, and get outside to catch BARTA live on stage.
