Back to Summer Festivals – more from Best Kept Secret from last weekend. Homegrown this time, by way of Stand Of Oaks, one of the favorites at this years festival, Timothy Showalter, or Strand Of Oaks as he is best known, is having a great year with no end in sight.
Finishing up an appearance on NPR’s Tiny Desk series just before heading over to Holland for Best Kept, he’s on his way back to the States for a swing through the Eastern half of the U.S., before stopping off in Chicago to do Lollapallooza on August 2nd and then to San Francisco to Outside Lands before heading back to Europe and the Green Man Festival in the U.K. and then back to the U.S. – and that’s just through October. Clearly, he’s on a roll this year.
With good reason – Strand Of Oaks have been getting a steadily growing following ever since Timothy’s fortunes changed a few years ago. He’s been steadily gathering fans and favorable press and it all comes as the direct result of not giving up.
If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Strand Of Oaks, and are heading to any one of a number of festivals in either the U.S. or in Europe this year, check out this concert from Best Kept Secret last weekend – the audience was suitably knocked out and I suspect you will be too.
Play loud and pick up his latest album – his Facebook page will tell you all about it.
