Pesky J. Nixon: Americana genre cyclical, popular again

It’s currently a boom time for folk music in the Northeast, and Massachusetts-based Pesky J. Nixon is taking full advantage of it. With a sound that pays tribute to a past steeped in sepia and rugged Americana, this rustic quartet also keeps its eyes on the future, combining an influx of influences that sets the foundation for their pleasing sound. The band’s music is a perfect fit for the Acoustic Brew concert series.
