Thinking Inside the Box: Catfish & the Bottlemen Perform a Communion Barnstormer, June 19 at Codfish Hollow Barn

Van McCann, singer and guitarist for the United Kingdom’s Catfish & the Bottlemen, has a strange relationship with the song “Homesick.”

“I thought it was the worst one of the batch we did ... when we first started recording for Communion,” he said, referring to the label/tour founded by Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett. “Since then, it’s become my favorite.”

What changed, McCann said, was that other people liked it. And therein lies a great deal of the charm of Catfish & the Bottlemen, a band described by the UK’s The Guardian as “deeply old-fashioned – and unfashionable.”

McCann doesn’t disagree with that assessment – whether it means an indifference toward appearance or, in a larger sense, a band more in love with the idea of playing for as many people as possible than selling lots of records or making artistic statements. When the quartet performs a Communion/Daytrotter show at Maquoketa’s Codfish Hollow Barn on June 19, expect no-frills rock-and-roll with one goal: to connect with the audience.

Willy Mason

An online comment on the American Songwriter review of Willy Mason’s Carry on disputed the gushing praise heaped on the album, complaining that “the percussion sounds to me like it’s straight from a drum-machine loop.”

There’s a simple reason for that: It was.

The singer/songwriter will be performing October 17 at Maquoketa’s Codfish Hollow Barn as part of the Communion Tour with Rubblebucket, Roadkill Ghost Choir, and others. In a phone interview last week, Mason explained that the drum-machine idea came from producer Dan Carey. “He had that, and I had the songs, and we went in and we started working with that rhythm, and things just unfolded from there pretty quickly,” he said. “I was actually skeptical at first, but I thought it would be worth a try. ...

Loyal to the “Awesome Lesson of Jazz”: Keegan DeWitt at Daytrotter’s Barnstormer 5, September 3 at Codfish Hollow Barn

Keegan DeWitt. Photo by Beau Burgess.Keegan DeWitt is inviting his fans along on his journey, in what passes for real time in the music industry.

The Nashville-based musician and composer has many of his film scores available for free on his Web site. His earlier solo recordings found him in singer/songwriter mode. A trio of singles over the past year have shown him making the transition from solo artist to bandleader. And he hopes that all those elements will come together on the album he and his band are working on.

A Daytrotter.com veteran with three sessions under his belt and an EP (last year’s Nothing Shows) released by the Quad Cities-based site, DeWitt will perform as part of the September 3 Daytrotter Barnstormer 5 concert in Maquoketa’s Codfish Hollow Barn.

Two years ago, he said in a phone interview this week, he recorded largely by himself with a couple of string players. As he’s built a band, he said, “we wanted to make sure that everybody was following us on that trajectory, instead of listening to something that was super-outdated. ... We wanted to make sure that through this process of making music ... we weren’t waiting on anybody.”
