The thing that happens when Allison Russell and JT Nero come together as Birds of Chicago is magical. Here, they work through "Lodestar" live on location at the 2016 Fayetteville Roots Festival in Fayetteville, Arkansas, with Russell moving from vocals to banjo to clarinet. If that ain't magic ...

This year's festival takes place August 23-17 with a lineup that includes Iron & Wine, Rodney Crowell, John Paul White, River Whyless, the Wood Brothers, John Fullbright, Matt the Electrician, Mandolin Orange, the Stray Birds, Dead Man Winter, and more. Grab your tickets now. We'll see you there!
