Jonathan Byrd, Sally Spring 

When: Sat., June 25, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $12-15

A music-loving preacher's kid, Jonathan Byrd only ever wanted to strum the guitar and sing songs. Over time, he's turned it into a career, releasing a half-dozen albums of country-folk with traditional undertones (fiddles and banjos), though he's drifted into Townes Van Zandt-style Texas country, jangly folk and Southern-flavored rock (especially for 2006's This Is the New That). His latest, Cackalack, features one of his finest batch of songs, including the bluegrass morning-after ode "Reckon I Did" and the ruminative folk take "I Was an Oak Tree." Tender, dusky-voiced roots siren Sally Spring opens. —Chris Parker
