Lawrence's Calamity Cubes perform with acoustic guitar, banjo, and upright bass. They'd be hard-pressed to call themselves a bluegrass band, instead preferring to identify as a bunch of songwriters who happened to learn bluegrass instruments (i.e. acts like the Avett Brothers and Old Crow Medicine Show). After a short run in Wichita, the Cubes relocated to Lawrence to play the downtown circuit. They've been running at the speed of a steam train ever since, and they recently celebrated the release of their second album "Long Cold Winter." Lydia Loveless is a Columbus, Ohio-based singer-songwriter with country flair. Like many country music aficionados, Adam Lee came to the genre after a youth in punk rock. After growing up in Virginia, Lee drifted to Arizona and started a band called The Bible Belt with multi-instrumentalist Johnny Kay. The duo relocated to Kansas City a couple years back, founding a partnership called Adam Lee and the Dead Horse Sound Company (the latter being the name for Kay’s record-producing alias). Check out our podcast preview of the band's new album.
