When Holly Macve begins singing, the sounds that come out recall golden country greats like Emmylou Harris and Patsy Cline; the songs on her 2017 Bella Union debut Golden Eagle evoke the classic Americana imagery of desolate, dusty roads and wide open skies. So it’s a bit of a surprise when, after opening number “Heartbreak Blues,” Macve thanks the audience in a British accent.

Sounds of Treefort 2016 #22: Holly Macve

The way things are going, I can’t help but feel that I enjoy the smaller, more boutique festivals more than those bigger, big name events.
