Son Volt will open the June 16 Shovels and Rope show, presented with Cat’s Cradle. Alt-country pioneer Son Volt is the creation of singer-songwriter-guitarist Jay Farrar, who formed the band 25 years ago after the breakup of Uncle Tupelo, the band he cofounded with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco fame. Son Volt’s 1995 album Trace is a masterpiece and was expanded and remastered by Rhino Records for a 20th-anniversary reissue. The band recently released a fine album of classic blues called Notes of Blue.
The concert and movie schedule is available at ncartmuseum.org. Concerts and movies take place at the Joseph M. Bryan, Jr., Theater in the Ann and Jim Goodnight Museum Park. Parking is free
