THOUGHTS: I had never heard of Linda Perhacs before Way Over Yonder, but when I googled her name, I found a Wikipedia entry that revealed to me that she had recorded her first album in 1970 titled “Parallelograms”. Further research revealed that this psychdelic folk album, though not commercially successful when it was initially released, was having its own modern day renaissance. Highly rated by many critics and online resources, the album has been reissued on several occasions over the years. It took over 40 years, but Ms. Perhacs finally recorded and released her sophomore album, “The Soul of All Natural Things” earlier this year.

Way Over Yonder | Santa Monica Pier | 9/26/14 – 9/27/14 [Homepage]

It may officially be fall … but it still feels like Summer in Los Angeles. It certainly feels like summer when the sun is shining and music is playing at the Santa Monica Pier.

 

In only its second year, the Way Over Yonder festival features two days of well curated American folk music. With up and coming, and award winning, recording artists taking the stage, performing both intimate and rocking sets, it was a terrific showcase of American music.
