Group Description

This is a group for people to trade live music by folk, folk-rock, roots, alt-country, americana, and similar artists. The hope is that once you hear the artist via a live show you will go out and purchase their albums. Officially released live albums cannot be traded here and no live performance traded here should be sold or used to make money in any way. The list will also be used to set up trees and vines. Most people are familiar with trading by trees, but I’ve found that some people do not understand the concept of vines. Usually a vine moves from one person to the next, but when I made this list most people who joined it were part of the Greg Brown yahoo group. On that group we usually offer the show up to two people and then those people offer it to two people and so on (called a weed actually, thanks for reminding me Brown). If you feel this is unfair as you only get one copy and you make two I would recommend not joining in the weed like vines and just trading show for show, or asking if a single pass on is ok too. Some artists you will see (or have already seen) here are Greg Brown, David Zollo, Kelly Pardekooper, Iris Dement, Bo Ramsey, Pieta Brown, Kevin Kinney, Todd Snider, Will Kimbrough, Tommy Womack (that's Will, Todd, and Tommy in the picture), Jack Ingram, Bob Dylan, Drive-By Truckers, Karen Savoca, Gillian Welch, Ani DiFranco, Warren Haynes, Brent Best, Patterson Hood, Jason Isbell, Ryan Adams, Bob Schneider, Son Volt, Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, Leonard Cohen, Hank III, Calexico, Lucinda Williams, Mitchell Williams, and anyone you want to offer up. Enjoy.

I'd also like to get all artists that we trade or vine on here listed in the links section, if you know of a great artist we should know, add their site to the links section. Add a link to your trading list as well if you want. This would give us a place to check for shows we are looking for and set up trades for them.

Enough rambling, got a good show? Offer it up.
