We are honored to be performing at a show honoring the 46th anniversary of the release of Sweetheart of the Rodeo, The Byrds' unbelievably influential album from 1968 that Gram Parsons had such a big hand in. Four bands will play the album in its entirety; we get to play Pretty Boy Floyd, Hickory Wind, 100 Years from Now, and The Blue Canadian Rockies. Go figure: a hugely successful pop band decides to put out an album of bluegrass and country songs.
Cornell Brothers will kick off the evening at the annual Roots Family Reunion this Saturday. Doors open at 6:00, we go on at 7:00. Come early: free food while it lasts! If you're under 21 you can get in with parents.
I will be joined by the wonderful Rip Westmoreland, a college mate of mine, on mandolin. Note the early start time! The Museum hosts a Friday evening free folk music series that has become very popular. Just across from Lincoln Center.
We will be a part of the Prospect Heights Festival, a week long celebration of Brooklyn bands at this great Brooklyn venue.
We will be back at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 1. Perfect Monday evening/ after work time. David Maddox on accordion, guitar, drums; Gypsy George on drums, piano, mando, etc.; Alex Mallett on standup bass; Greg Cornell on guitar and harmonica. And surprise guests!
