About Hurray for the Riff Raff
Hurray for the Riff Raff began when a teenage Alynda Lee Segarra began hopping trains, traveling across the country while learning to play banjo. Eventually she settled in New Orleans, and allowed music to take hold of her life. She quickly embraced the city’s community of street musicians, who encouraged her to develop her banjo skills and sing old Jazz songs. She was soon performing with many of the traditional jazz bands who perform on the sidewalks of the French Quarter, playing and singing while learning from the music of the city she loves.
They bring delicate wanderings of old souls and spirits from the past into the wide open spaces of consciousness. They are influenced by the sounds of classic country like Hank Williams, Sr., 1960’s Rock n Roll, and master singer/songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Neil Young.
Earlier this year, eMusic chose Hurray for the Riff Raff’s new LPYoung Blood Blues, for its eMusic Selects Program. The Program features a small handful up-and-coming unsigned bands a year. Other notable eMusic Selects artists have included Best Coast, Crystal Stilts, and the High Places. Young Blood Blues remained in the top of the eMusic charts for months, and received the following critical praise.
