The storied Newport Folk Festival, which bills itself as “the original music festival” and has delivered historic moments on the East Coast since 1959, will uproot and head west in the fall for Way Over Yonder, a new  festival taking place at the Santa Monica Pier. The festival, produced by Newport, will take place on two stages on Oct. 5 and 6, and feature an impressive 10-artist roster that includes soulful country-rock singer Neko Case, songwriter Conor Oberst, Arizona geniuses Calexico and hard Nashville troubadour Justin Townes Earle, among others.

"I don't think I've ever seen so many hats in an audience before," said Norah Jones to a crowd taking in her performance Friday night at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio. The sight of tens of thousands of cowboy hats may have given the three-day hoedown a certain visual uniformity, but the 48 acts it featured across several stages were anything but unified in their approach toward country music. The festival, which took place on the grounds of the Empire Polo Club where the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival had been earlier in the month, featured everything from Lady Antebellum's polished balladry to the bumptious honky-tonk of Hank Williams Jr. to the roots music of Justin Townes Earle.

NASHVILLE -- Justin Townes Earle laughs when you try to label "The Good Life," his debut album. It's a vintage-country, almost burlesque kinda folk-blues singer-songwritery cocktail of songs, written with the same thin but deep slices of emotions favored by legendary Texas songwriter Townes Van Zandt -- from whom the 25-year-old gets his middle name. "I don't know what 'Americana' means," Earle says, tossing a shock of dark hair off his forehead and leaning closer.

When Colin Gilmore was 8, he remembers his father, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, coming to Lubbock, Texas, to play ? and being on the local news. "He'd moved to Austin by then, so it was good to see my dad, but strange he was on TV. There was no notion he was gonna be a Texas legend, so we were all surprised," the son says, marveling at the gap between his sense of a parent and the public perception. Gilmore's father ? like his mom and their friends ? played music. That's just what they did; the trail-blazing wasn't planned.

Buddy and Julie Miller "Written in Chalk" (New West) . . The word that seems to crop up with greater frequency than any other here is "goodbye." Loss and how it affects the human spirit are central in these dozen songs, most of them written by Julie and sung alternately, or occasionally together, by her and her guitarist-producer husband. This uncommonly moving collection, only the second from the first couple of Americana music, opens with the reflective "Ellis County," written by Julie "for Momma," according to the CD's lovely booklet containing the lyrics and credits.
