“Folk music” can mean anything these days, but more often than not the term gets stuck to every self-obsessed troubadour with an acoustic guitar. Nashville transplants Alynda Segarra (Hurray for the Riff Raff) and Adia Victoria hark back to the days when the genre was less about a look or a style than about street-level reportage. Segarra’s "Everybody Knows (for Trayvon Martin)” and Victoria’s “Stuck in the South” both grapple with their region’s racist legacy, and there’s more where those came from (Segarra, who is Puerto Rican, has released five full-lengths; Victoria, who is Trinidadian, is working on her first). Attuned to the inequities that surround them, they love the South, they hate the South, and they’re doing their part to change its troubled image. KATHY FENNESSY
