Milsap, Wiseman, Cochran get call from Country Music Hall of Fame
22 April, 2014 - Yahoo.com
(Reuters) - Ronnie Milsap, who scored a handful of crossover hits in the 1970s and 1980s, bluegrass singer Mac Wiseman and songwriter Hank Cochran are this year's inductees into the County Music Hall of Fame, the Country Music Association said on Tuesday. Milsap, the singer of hits such as 1977's "It Was Almost Like a Song," 1981's "(There's) No Gettin' Over Me" and 1982's "Any Day Now," broke ground as a blind country music star and helped the genre win over pop music fans. Milsap started his career as a rhythm and blues performer in the 1960s and served a session musician for Elvis Presley. In 1972, he was discovered by country star Charley Pride who convinced Milsap to move to Nashville and focus on country music.

Music films hit distinct note at annual Tribeca Film Festival
18 April, 2014 - Yahoo.com
By Chris Michaud NEW YORK (Reuters) - Music and movies played together even before sound revolutionized film during its infancy, and so it is at the Tribeca Film Festival where the documentary lineup is heavy on musical subjects, from hip hop star Nas to shock rocker Alice Cooper. And while documentaries have traditionally comprised as much as half of Tribeca's scores of offerings, films about musicians Bjork, Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir, James Brown and others have lent this year's festival a decidedly tuneful air. "We never program to an agenda," said Tribeca's director of programming, Genna Terranova.

"Putting together a music festival that blurred those lines of genres and all walks of life and all people can come, and it's in this city, it's not some far-off place that you can't get to," the 44-year-old rapper said. Garcetti touted the positive economic impact the inaugural festival, which featured performances by Pearl Jam, Drake, Rita Ora and Jay Z himself, had on Philadelphia, bringing in more than $10 million for the local economy and helping the hotel occupancy rate increase to more than 90 percent.

By Piya Sinha-Roy LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Canadian alternative-rock group Arcade Fire closed the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Sunday with special guest Debbie Harry but deplored the festival's growing amenities reserved for VIPs only. Arcade Fire kicked off its set with "Reflektor," the title song from last year's album of the same name, and led into songs such as ""Flashbulb Eyes" and "Rebellion (Lies)." "We've been coming here for many years now, so it's an honor to be headlining," said the band's frontman, Win Butler. But Butler took a moment on stage to criticize Coachella's VIP area, saying "people are dreaming to get in there, but it super sucks in there, so don't worry about it." The band then played its nostalgia-infused track "The Suburbs," changing part of the lyrics to sing "in a field full of freaks and my friends," eliciting cheers from the audience. The band were later joined by Blondie singer Debbie Harry, who performed her classic 1979 hit "Hearts of Glass" with Arcade Fire's frontwoman Regine Chassagne, and the band's song "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)." Arcade Fire ended with "Wake Up," joined by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
