Excerpt from the White Wall Sessions website (About section):
The White Wall Sessions, located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, films and records roots Americana artists, broadcasting these recorded performances on television and radio as season episodes. With their objective being that of providing the audience with an unobstructive closeup view/listen of artists and their music, the White Wall Sessions produce audio-visual gallery-esque portraits of artists’ performances by recording each episode in a white-walled studio, where the artists perform in an austere setting of instruments and equipment surrounded by white background. The focus is completely on the artist and their music.
Excerpt from The White Wall Sessions website:
“The White Wall Sessions showcases local, regional and national music acts performing original acoustic, americana, bluegrass, folk and blues in a laid back, intimate setting…” “…(taking) an artistic, documentary-like visual feel to each song, which gives the viewer a personal, introspective look at each musician and song.”
The White Wall Sessions episodes air on television on KCLO TV (Rapid City, South Dakota) and KELO TV (Sioux Falls, South Dakota), with the radio show airing on Sundays on KYBB B102.7 FM.
Listen live Sundays 7pm CST (United States):

The Glasgow-Americana music festival takes place this October 7-11, 2015, featuring blues, folk, and country music acts from around the globe at various sponsored venues throughout Glasgow, Scotland.
Background of the founding of Glasgow-Americana: (news source courtesy Herald Scotland news)
From 1995 to 2007, Glasgow enjoyed the roots music events that took place during the Big Big Country Festival. The torch passed on from Big Big Country Festival to Glasgow-Americana festival with the passing of Big Big Country Festival founder Billy Kelly in 2007. To keep the tradition and spirit of the music festival going, and in tribute to Billy Kelly, the Glasgow-Americana Festival was organized by Kevin Morris’ Fallen Angels Club Promotions, Ltd.
