Mason Lankford & The Folk Family Revival – “Fallen”
One of the nice things about living in a city the size of Houston is quite a few tours route through (despite my complaining that often bands skip us). When I lived in Bakersfield, it wasn’t unusual for me to make the 100 mile drive (one way) to catch a show down in LA. There were also a handful of local BFL bands that I would listen to – Near Miss Mallet and The Dalloways are a couple I can remember. Over the last few years here in Houston I’ve also delved into discovering the local talent, but not as much as I should so I think that will feature a few of them on Fridays this year. That said, I have several friends (as well as a great local music store – Cactus Music) that are much more connected to the local scene than I am, so let’s start off with a band that while it took me some time, I finally caught a set by – Mason Lankford & The Folk Family Revival. Better late than never, right?
