Rotterdam Bluegrass Festival and more for Joseph Huber14-06-2018
By now Joseph Huber is probably working on his "solo" career for longer than he's been a part of the infamous bluegrass band The .357 Stringband who split in 2011. Despite it's abrupt break-up, this band still continues to gain popularity and is known as one of the most influential groups in the recent insurgent underground country and bluegrass movement.
Having moved from The .357 Stringband, Joseph Huber has honed his songwriting abilities immensely and now continues moving onward and upward captivating folks with his sincere and well-crafter songs. Whether it's irresistible, fiddle-driven, dancing tunes or honest, heart-wrenching "songwriter" songs, Huber spans the spectrum of roots music while preferring not to stay within it's boundaries. His lyricism and introspective writing style has received high acclaim from many Americana enthusiasts looking for a more substantive substitute to much of today's modern country.
His fourth studio album The Suffering Stage brings him to Europe this month for a select number of performances including one at the Rotterdam Bluegrass Festival. The Suffering Stage is a shift in both writing style and in it's filled-out production style, which looks beyond his usual minimalistic folk recording. The album was put out through Muddy Roots Records.
