Don't know how we've avoided talking about Brown Bird since I know quite a few GPN fans who also dig what they're up to. Songs about good and evil and folks who try to walk the line between them. Raggedy old time folk mixed with Eastern European influences and even, as my kid points out to me, heavy metal chord progressions.
Brown Bird is great on record but is a band best experienced live. Check out their latest release "Salt for Salt" on Bandcamp
David Lamb and MorganEve Swain are clearly a band on the rise. They were one of the breakout bands from last years Newport Folk Festival and will be returning this year. A few dates in May in the Northeast is the only chance you'll get to see them as they'll be on the road with Yonder Mountain String Band and Trampled by Turtles for most of the next few months.
