This performance, recorded in 1996, was a milestone in the evolution of so-called “alternative country” music (sometimes referred to as Americana.) Jay Farrar, along with Jeff Tweedy, were founding members of the legendary band Uncle Tupelo. Following the band’s break-up, songwriter and guitarist Farrar forged ahead into new musical territory, putting together drummer Mike Heidorn and multi-talented brothers, guitarist Dave and bassist Jim Boquist, to create Son Volt.
