On July 31st, Putumayo, a label with a long history of showcasing roots-based music from around the world, turns its attention to this rich genre with the release of Americana.   At the heart of the album are contemporary singer-songwriters who have honed their craft by exploring the country’s rural traditions. Americana features artists such as The Little Willies, comprised of Grammy-award winners Norah Jones and Lee Alexander, newcomers Eliza Lynn, Kevin Kerby of Mulehead, Banjo virtuoso Alison Brown, and others including Robert Earl Keen, RobinElla, Ruthie Foster, Old Crow Medicine Show, and more. 

* Americana joins American Folk, American Blues, Mississippi Blues and others as the latest release in Putumayo’s American music series.  A portion of Putumayo’s proceeds from the sale of this CD will be donated to America’s Second Harvest – The Nation’s Food Bank Network, which feeds local communities who struggle with persistent hunger on a daily basis.
