Jason Isbell, Grammy-winning guitarist and pride of Alabama, brought his band The 400 Unit to the closing day of the Savannah Music Festival to share his songs of hope and defiance. Isbell’s trademark blend of earnest and soulful lyrics and devil-may-care playing style allows him to take on any subject with a musical confidence that is both rare and a pleasure to behold. Whatever Isbell is giving listeners, it is instantly obvious that he truly believes his own message, and that type of honesty is very attractive.Since bursting on the scene with The Drive-By Truckers, Isbell has built himself a rock-solid reputation as a singer-songwriter and a fiery guitarist that follows his own vision. Though Isbell clearly views his backing band with great trust and affection, he takes the majority of each song’s burden on his own back. This he does this without ego, and his singular sound gives each song an idiosyncratic bent that makes them stand out.As part of the Savannah Music Festival’s first-ever closing event at the brand new Trustees’ Gardens in downtown Savannah, Isbell and company got to share the stage with a wonderful selection of Americana artists like the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Gillian Welch, Brett Dennen, and many more. Though he only had an hour, Isbell’s set was a fine sample of what is to come on his just-announced tour and a fine slice of music bliss for old fans and new alike. Check out our video highlights from Isbell’s set at the fest in the clips below!Setlist: Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit | Savannah Music Festival | Savannah, GA | 4/14/2018Set One: Anxiety, Hope The High Road, 24 Frames, White Man’s World, Decoration Day, Codeine, Molotov, Cumberland Gap, Tupelo, Last Of My Kind, Alabama Pines, Flying Over Water, Cover Me Up, If We Were Vampires
Both journalists were told they were “persons of interest” in an investigation into Cheng, a high-profile business anchor on Chinese state television, who has been detained by authorities, the AFR report said.The journalists flew out of China on Monday night and arrived in Sydney on Tuesday morning following what public broadcaster the ABC called an “extraordinary diplomatic standoff”.Birtles told reporters at Sydney airport it was very disappointing to have to leave China under “those circumstances.””But this was a whirlwind and it was not a particularly good experience,” he said. The ABC said it brought Birtles back to Australia following advice from the Australian government.The Australian Financial Review said in a statement the two journalists were “going about their normal reporting duties”. It added that the incident was “regrettable and disturbing and is not in the interests of a co-operative relationship between Australia and China”.Relations between Australia and China have soured this year in the wake of Canberra’s calls for an independent international investigation into the source of the coronavirus pandemic.Beijing was angered by the move and has since blocked Australian beef imports, placed dumping tariffs on Australian barley, and launched an anti-dumping investigation into Australian wine.Topics : Two of Australia’s leading foreign correspondents in China have rushed home for their own safety after they were questioned separately by China’s Ministry of State security, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) reported on Tuesday.China correspondents for the ABC and the Australian Financial Review (AFR) sought shelter in Australia’s embassy in Beijing and consulate in Shanghai as diplomats negotiated with Chinese officials to allow them to leave the country, the ABC and the AFR reported.The two journalists – ABC’s Bill Birtles and AFR’s Michael Smith – had been banned from leaving China until they answered questions about detained Australian citizen and television anchor Cheng Lei, AFR said in a report.
