Folk Alliance Showcases This Week!

We are heading east to Kansas City tomorrow where it’s 21c!  The cherry blossoms and magnolia trees are blossoming here in San Francisco so it will be an acclimation for sure, but we are ready to hit the road nonetheless for Folk Alliance 2015!  We’ve added some additional showcases to our Official Showcase on Sat. Feb.  22.

Our personal favorite showcase is the Library of Congress’s American Folklife Center (AFC) invitation to perform our own version of a Lomax-collected song. This year marks the 100th birthday of influential folklorist and musician Alan Lomax (1915-2002), who collected folks like Muddy Waters, Lead Belly, Aunt Molly Jackson, and Woody Guthrie.

We won’t say what song we are doing but let’s say everyone
from Aerosmith to Randy Travis have sung it!
