I originally heard about Delta Rae while living up in Bethlehem, PA. The lively country six-piece has come up to Christmas City a handful of times in the past, and even won our hearts with a high-powered song about the rise and fall of Bethlehem Steel on 2015’s “After It All.” Even so, I had never gotten the chance to take in the full, live Delta Rae experience…

Today, we take a ride on the internet highway to Williamsburg, VA to listen to Scott Grim’s solo debut. The two-song “Hallelujah, Then,” released in October 2018, is a story about love, loss, and religion, and offers a stark contrast in styles from one song to the next.
Kara Hartzell’s self-titled 4-song EP is a moving story about heartbreak and life’s sudden — and sometimes, unexpected — changes. Recognizing, accepting, and moving on from life-changing events is something we all have to face at some point in our lives. To do so can be challenging and often frightening. It takes strength and courage to fight through it and move on. It’s even harder to share that with the world but, that’s exactly what Kara does with her latest release (July 2018).
With a distinctive voice and crafty acoustic guitar work, San Diego’s Mighty Mage (real name Khalid Hussain) has released a tender, yet dynamic single titled “Forgot the Way.”

Sunday afternoon came with some Folk Vibes in South Bethlehem.
