Play on, Butte County
CN&R’s annual look at our music community
This year, we are celebrating a couple of local groups that have captured our imaginations with their unique sounds—experimental hip-hop crew Pervert and “mom rock” four-piece Susurrus. But we also catch up with one of Butte County’s favorite sons, Paradise bluesman Maurice “Big Mo” Huffman, who opens up about his life post-fire.
It’ll be years before we see how the recovery plays out, and what will become of the area’s music scene. In the meantime, we support those who’ve lost everything—and encourge them to keep playing great songs.
