Lost Music Saloon presents:

There has been a recent uptick in the number of black artists making an impact on the country music charts, and in Americana circles in general. Today’s Lost Music Saloon will take a listen to some of these artists and try to put them into context with other black artists and bands that have played country/folk/Americana music over the past decades. There’s more Ebony Twang out there than you might have realized, folks!
