Summer 2016: Homegrown
No Depression started it's life as a quarterly print magazine in 1995, fueled by it's founding editors' passion for alt-country music and long-form journalism. Over the course of it's first print run, it helped solidify the importance of Americana and roots music on the national stage. In the years since, No Depression has developed a robust web publication, publishing long features, honest criticism, and weekly columns in addition to it's wealth of community-driven content. In 2015, to celebrate the publication's 20th anniversary, the FreshGrass Foundation brought it back to print as a high-end, ad-free, quarterly journal focused once again on long-form music journalism. The Summer 2016 issue follows the theme of "Homegrown," looking closely at family bands, sibling duos, and local music scenes that have been built on the strength of family connections. The Gulf Coast, California, the Pacific Northwest, upstate New York, and the UK are spotlighted, as we explore homegrown movements in roots music.
