Back Stage with the Bands

Where can you find Margo Price when she’s not on the road or at home in Nashville? What’s Nathaniel Rateliff’s favorite Southern song? G&G got the chance to find out last weekend at the inaugural High Water Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, where we caught up with dozens of the musicians backstage.

Hosted by Charleston duo Shovels & Rope, the fest boasted a line up stocked with such G&G regulars as The Avett Brothers, Dawes, John Moreland, and JD McPherson, plus Price, Rateliff and his band, the Nightsweats, and more than a dozen others. Click through the slideshow to see the highlights from all the sets, and get to know some of the artists.
