Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival and Canadian indie folk band The Strumbellas premiere a LIVE version of their #1 hit track “Spirits” as part of the festival’s 2016 Pilgrimage Sessions. The video was recorded live at the second annual Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival in Franklin, TN, which featured the band performing in a cozy, decked out airstream presented by Sixthman.
The Strumbellas, Simon Ward (vocals, acoustic guitar), David Ritter (piano, percussion, vocals), Jeremy Drury (drums, percussion), Isabel Ritchie (violin, vocals), Jon Hembrey (electric guitar) and Darryl James (bass) rose to fame when they released their latest album, Hope in April 2016. “Spirits,” the first single off Hope, rapidly reached #1 on both the Alternative Radio and the Billboard Alternative Songs charts.
Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival is a two-day event transforming The Park at Harlinsdale Farm into an oasis of music, food, and culture set against the natural amphitheaters and vistas of this former horse farm located in Franklin, TN. Going into its third year, the festival has been hailed by
Rolling Stone as having “established itself as a festival to watch.” The previous lineups have included heavy hitters Willie Nelson, Steven Tyler, Beck, Daryl Hall and John Oates, Jason Isbell, and Kacey Musgraves and up and coming indie favorites such as The Strumbellas, Kaleo, Shakey Graves and more.
Not only does the festival drive tourism dollars to Williamson County but a portion of each ticket sale benefits the City of Franklin, Franklin Parks and MusiCares®, a nonprofit organization that was established by The Recording Academy®.
