Photos: Will Whitmore, Old Scratch Revival Singers, Nathaniel Rateliff 8/29 in Rock Island

I hopped over the Mississippi River to the Rock Island Brewery Company a couple weeks ago to see this excellent conglomeration of performers – Nathaniel Rateliff, Will Whitmore and the Old Scratch Revival Singers. I’ve seen all these folks in Iowa City, but it was great to take a little trip out of town to catch some great ‘local’ music. One of the most exciting things about this show was the energy that was brought to the stage and how it was mirrored by the audience.

If you’re not familiar with any of these performers, now is the time to do your research. They’re among my favorites.
