Roots artist brings 'Women & Roads' to Cottonwood

Connecticut native Sean McAlindin will make his Cottonwood Restaurant & Bar debut this week, bringing a recently released album of country and bluegrass songs to the stage.

The Truckee resident released “Women & Roads” in September.

The album was written over the course of a decade and follows the journeys and relationships of a travelling man looking for love, according to a press release from the artist.

“McAlindin plays each and every instrument on the record himself, moving seamlessly from honky-tonk piano to rollicking banjo and the swell of the Hammond Organ, in the process creating a unique sound and style that puts a contemporary take on the country/bluegrass tradition,” according to the release. “Imagine a sound influenced by the acoustic rhythms of traditional folk and old time, true to his Irish-American roots, with a voice reminiscent of modern revivalists like Neil Young and Bob Dylan.”

McAlindin’s profile on lists Yonder Mountain String Band, the Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show and the String Cheese Incident as artists with similar sounds to that of McAlindin.

“Women & Roads” is available for preview and purchase at
