celebrating Pacific northwest roots
Americana artists are by nature are traditionalist American musicians who infuse roots music – which includes elements of rock, folk, blues, bluegrass and even R&B – to create a sound that channels the spirit of traditional American music. The best Americana bands have been internationally recognized and critically acclaimed for creatively bringing the roots music movement to a wider audience. While Americana bands and Americana artists first achieved tepid popularity during the 1960s, since the onset of the 1990s, they’ve grown in popularity and acclaim, with some even taking home major Grammy awards.
So, what are the best Americana bands? When people think of Americana music, the best examples of the top Americana bands includes The Band (who strangely enough aren’t even American), Bob Dylan, The Avett Brothers, Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams, The Civil Wars and Son Volt. These are some of the best bands in the genre and some are considered among the greatest. That’s the beauty of Americana music: it fuses so many different other genres that different music artists can create the Americana sound.
