Jim Herrington is one of the most accomplished music photographers of our time and the guy behind some truly iconic shots of Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and other legends of country, blues and rock & roll. He’s been a longtime contributor to the Fretboard Journal; you may remember the incredible short story and photograph he contributed to our magazine upon tracking down Mickey Baker in rural France. Herrington has his first coffee table book out and, no, it’s not on music heroes.
Jolie Holland, Samantha Parton and Stevie Weinstein-Foner perform Townes Van Zandt’s classic tune, “You Are Not Needed Now” at the Fretboard Journal‘s Seattle headquarters. Holland and Parton were founders of the Be Good Tanyas and – after several years apart – they are releasing a new duo album this Fall entitled Wildflower Blues. Weinstein-Foner’s 1962 Silvertone has an interesting backstory. Holland discovered it at the Jalopy Theater & School for Music in the New York.
In the midst of their 2017 “Release the Hounds” tour, the trio of Aoife O’Donovan, Chris Eldridge and Julian Lage stopped by our Seattle headquarters. There was plenty of incredible guitar virtuosity during their visit, but this tune – a cover of Joanna Newsome’s “Good Intentions Paving Company” where Aoife’s vocals shined – stole the show for us. Eldridge is playing his 1954 Martin D-28; Lage is playing his Collings OM1A-T and O’Donovan is playing her Collings 0.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
