The recording home of bluegrass stalwarts Alison Kraus & Union Station, Steep Canyon Rangers and The Time Jumpers is moving its headquarters to Nashville by early next year. Rounder Records, which was founded more than four decades ago in the Boston area, will relocate a small team here — the company is scouting for some office space — while its founders stay in Massachusetts. Rounder has been owned by Concord Music Group since 2010.
Real estate veteran and Democratic bigwig Bill Freeman has donated $100,000 to Conexión Américas' capital campaign for Casa Azafrán, its initiative to — as Jim Ridley put it so well last year — "bring Nashville's immigrant communities not only closer to each other but closer to the rest of the city." Casa Azafrán is aiming to raise more than $5 million and Executive Director Renata Soto called Freeman's gift "an important milestone for Conexión Américas, not only for its size but also for the symbolism it carries coming from a native Nashvillian whose family has called this city home for many generations."
