The great Americana sounds of Hannah Fair, along with her Connecticut state-mates, The Meadows Brothers.

Hannah Fair

We don’t congratulate a runner when they have just started a race. No matter how great a lead they have built in the early going and how inevitable their victory seems, it’s just not the right time. Likewise, now is not the time to congratulate Hannah Fair, despite all she has accomplished already. We can celebrate, of course, the fact that she has already released a wonderful album, Open Road. We can cheer about the fact that she has recorded a live session for today’s preeminent music site, Daytrotter. And we can rejoice in the fact that she has a growing collection of new songs that we will get to hear when she reaches the next mile marker of a new album. So don’t congratulate her yet, but do watch her run the rest of the race: see her command a stage in person; sit with her records and wonder how she wrote a song just for you; listen to her switch lanes from folk to Americana to blues to something all her own, seemingly without effort. Ignore the fact that you know Hannah Fair is going to win, and enjoy watching her get to the finish line.
