The inaugural Westport Roots Fest, centered around the Westport Saloon and taking place on Saturday, May 24, is approaching fast. To prepare for the pending roots romp presented by the good folks at Little Class RecordsThe Pitch will be highlighting a "song of the day" from one of the featured artists in the weeks leading up to fest. 

County Graves hail from Carbondale, Illinois. On the band's Facebook page, they describe their sound as "devil Americana." This couldn't be more true: Once you've heard the voice of W.T. Newton, you won't forget it. It's an underworldly sound, bursting out of his throat like a command from a demon, and the added elements of mandolin, banjo, fiddle, lapsteel and harmonica fall into place behind Newton's front-and-center presence. If you ran into County Graves playing at some end-of-the-dirt-road dive bar somewhere at the edge of the Midwest, it would be best to enjoy the music and avoid direct eye contact - they are the kind of band you don't want to cross. County Graves' latest album will be released on Little Class Records on Saturday, May 24.
