One lovely afternoon in May, nestled in a room of a thousand guitar amplifiers, in the quiet intervals between the racket of a jackhammer tearing up the street outside, Tom Brosseau and I recorded six songs at Daytrotter’s FutureAppletree Studios in Rock Island, Illinois.

Tracks 4–5 are duets of a couple very old and very beautiful folk songs, and 6–7 are solos of my own. You must become a Daytrotter member to hear/download the recordings with me on them, but I trust you will not regret your decision … (listen here)

I’m waiting on the day nobody gonna keep me down
