Fairground Saints – “Can’t Control the Weather” (live video) (premiere)

Fairground Saints' virtuostic musicianship and heavenly harmonies drive their infectious brand of bluegrassy pop.

In premiering the Fairground Saints’ debut album in August of 2015, we said that “Fairground Saints are on to something very, very good on their debut album… the end result is a quietly beautiful album with enough ambition to try new things” and then we gave the album an 8 of 10 and PopMatters Pick status. Fairground Saints’ virtuostic musicianship and heavenly harmonies drive their infectious brand of bluegrassy pop. We’re fans and proud to present this new performance video of the tune, “Can’t Control the Weather”, a tune just in time for the gentle budding of spring.

Mason Van Valin tells us that he thinks “a good song transcends any medium, and that’s not to say production doesn’t enhance music in certain ways. But there’s something really pure and honest about hearing this tune completely acoustic.”
