    Join us at this wonderful historic venue for the release of our new CD "The Social Music Hour Vol. 1". Spuyten Duyvil's third full length CD is a love letter to Harry Smith's Anthology of American Music. Returning to the band's beginnings (a porch, a bouzouki, a copy of Rise Up Singing), producer Joe Iadanza and SD's Mark Miller mined this sing-along bible for great popular songs of the early 1900's. Seeking the lyrically relevant, known but not worn out, open for suggestion song, the field narrowed. The final track list thrives with re-interpretation. Familiar, forgotten words find new meaning in this historically informed but thoroughly contemporary treatment. Jug Band, Blues, 2nd Line, Piedmont, Roots Rock and English Folk blend the decades. The intimate sound of Spuyten Duyvil's 1898 Victorian living room turned live room is key. Old wood, plaster, real spaces, vintage guitars and hot tubes are captured in warm, analog tones by room designer and engineer Jim Keller (Willie Nelson, Nellie McKay). Recorded by the full band (no click, no net), the tracks burst with life, joy and vitality. You can multi-track all you want, but in the end, there is nothing like a bunch of friends laying it down live from the comfort of home. Five years of touring lend familiarity, intimacy and intuition to the dynamics. The band clearly knows and enjoys one another. They play off of each other. They harmonize as old friends. And then there is her voice. Lead singer Beth Kaufman stretches out and luxuriates. She inhabits characters, styles and emotions with ease, sincerity and virtuosity.
