Playing with Todd anywhere is always a treat. He's one of my favorite country singers in the world to play with or listen to; he really gets that old sound and phrasing. And watching him interact with people on Royal Street in New Orleans is just as fun as hearing him play.
"ZISL'S SHER AND KARAHOD" by LITVAKUS
An old Appalachian song I got from the playing of Cousin Emmy, recorded in Dead Horse Bay in Brooklyn, New York.
"BEFORE DAWN" by BROOKLYN BLUE GRASS COLLECTIVE
An original composition by Zisl Slepovitch (clarinet) followed by a traditional Belarusian Jewish circle dance tune.
Filmed live at DROM, a music venue in Manhattan's East Village.
This is an original bluegrass tune written by my former bandmate, Thomas Bryan Eaton (Miss Tess and the Talkbacks) recorded in Brooklyn for the Brooklyn Bluegrass Collective's Volume 2. BBC is a collective of musicians working to record, promote, and create bluegrass music in the New York Area.
