(St. Paul, Minn.) September 29, 2014— The Current today announced the United States of Americana Fifth Birthday show at Turf Club on November 6. The line-up features local alt-country crooner Frankie Lee and singer -songwriter Israel Nash, fresh off his recent release “Rain Plans,” headlines the show. Tickets for the 21+ event are $8 in advance and available at thecurrent.org.
Hosted by The Current’s Bill DeVille every Sunday at 8 a.m., United States of Americana features the best in folk, roots, bluegrass and alt-country. With the station since its inception in 2005, Deville has hosted several in-studio sessions on the show with such luminaries as Rosanne Cash and Justin Townes Earle, as well as with newcomers like J.D.

“I can’t wait to celebrate with some great music from a couple of artists our listeners have heard a lot on the show,” said DeVille. “Israel Nash’s new album is epic and Frankie has been tearing it up around the Twin Cities for the last few years.”
