Loud As Folk-Spike McGuire Album Release Tour
Loud As Folk founder Spike McGuire will be celebrating the release of his new album Caught In The Wild (Live). The project was funded in part by a grant from Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment For The Arts
. The 10 song collection was recorded in Reno, NV in front of a live audience at Good Luck Macbeth Theater earlier in the year. The album will be available as a premium 12″ vinyl record and limited edition cassette, as well as a CD/DVD combo. This special evening is one of several dates at
historic venues across Nevada and will also include performances from Loud As Folk Vice President Greg Gilmore and fan favorite Rachael McElhiney.
Spike McGuire is an internationally touring musician that has performed in 16 states and 5 countries as well as a GraphTech Guitar Labs endorsed artist. Spike spent the last decade and a half drawing parallels between the ethos of punk rock and the spirit of folk music by building community and engaging listeners with his message.
Founded in 2011, Loud As Folk has become a hub of the west coast songwriting scene focused on highlighting emerging artists with distinct approaches to all genres of American roots music. In the process of bringing these acts together to perform, a beautiful community naturally formed with artists and audience members alike. Now LAF is a global network of songwriters who collaborate, tour, and record in ever changing combinations.
