OUTSKIRTS brings weekly intimate performances from the best voices in country, folk, and Americana as part of Bandsintown LIVE’s newly expanded programming.
Live shows and an intimate connection with the audience are the
lifeblood and livelihood of country, folk, and Americana artists. As
concerts remain in limbo, Bandsintown is helping artists spark that
connection in new ways.
As part of Bandsintown LIVE, the wildly successful daily music channel, the live performance discovery platform hosts OUTSKIRTS, a dedicated country, folk and Americana show that presents performances from emerging and established artists every Monday.

Memorial Day provides the perfect opportunity to gather a powerful
lineup of spirited performers, beginning with Mary Gauthier, who's most
recently released Grammy nominated album Rifles + Rosary Beads exclusively features songs co-written with American soldiers.
“It is my great pleasure to be able to jump on the Bandsintown
platform to play a live show for folks on Memorial Day. As a traveling
troubadour who usually plays well over 100 shows a year, being grounded
has been a challenge. I am making the most of this time, but playing for
folks is what I was put here to do,” says Mary Gauthier. “On May 25th, I
look forward to singing several of the songs I co-wrote with veterans
and their families, and talking about the experience of working with
wounded veterans through the SongwritingWith:Soldiers program.”
The livestream, hosted by Nashville duo Wild Ponies, will celebrate
the community of artists and fans who need each other right now, while
honoring the contributions of veterans and their families to our
country. It will feel as friendly as a backyard barbeque and as
musically satisfying as your favorite festival, all from the comfort and
safety of home.
“We made a deal as artists that we’d be there for our community when
they need us. It’s an important part of what we do, maybe the most
important part,” reflects Doug Williams of Wild Ponies. “We might not be
able to climb up on a big festival stage right now, but thanks to
Bandsintown, we can do this! It’s going to feel really good to hang out
and talk with some friends, even through a computer screen.”
