November Newsletter: Anais Mitchell and Horse Feathers at Bowery Ballroom 11/13 – Rodeo Bar 11/30 – 7″ Vinyl Release Concert at Rockwood 12/15

Dear Friends,
I’m so excited to announce several big shows I have coming up, as well as the upcoming release of a 7″ vinyl record on Brooklyn’s Media Blitz label!
This week: I’ll be playing a string of East Coast concerts with Anais Mitchell and Portland, OR Indie-Folk quartet Horse Feathers. We’re kicking off the tour on Tuesday, Nov. 9 in Montreal, Canada, heading south through Vermont, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, and finishing up next Saturday in New York City for a hometown spectacular at the famousBowery Ballroom! I’ll be playing guitar and singing harmony vocals with Anais, and Chicago songwriter Rachel Ries rounds out the trio on drums, keys, and vocals. I can’t wait to hit the road again with Anais and Rachel after our successful Midwest tour last summer!
Then: I’ll be playing two Cambridge, MA dates with Boston’s favorite acoustic songwriting troupe, Session Americana. On Nov. 17 and 18 we’ll be headlining the Lizard Lounge for two intimate nights of music. I first played with Session Americana at NYC’s Rodeo Bar last September, and I’m thrilled they asked me back to play mandolin and sing original songs and harmony vocals.
Speaking of Rodeo Bar: On Tuesday, Nov. 30, I’ll be playing a full night of music (two sets, a NYC rarity) at New York’s oldest Honky-Tonk, the Rodeo Bar. I’ve got a great electric band lined up featuring Robin Macmillan on drums, Jacob Silver on bass, and more special guests sure to be announced. This is my first headlining show at Rodeo, and I’d love to make it a regular hometown gig. Come out and get down with us! We’ll be playing a mix of original songs, electric folk arrangements, and wailing, high and lonesome country-rock covers.
And finally: I’m pleased to announce the upcoming release of my first vinyl album on Brooklyn’s Media Blitz label! Titled “This Ragged World We Spanned“, this 2-song 7” record features a solo acoustic version of the title track, as well as my rendition of the folk classic “Barbara Ellen”. This limited edition (only 500 copies will be printed) record features handmade, silk-screened sleeve artwork and includes a coupon for a free digital download of the tracks, mastered by Grammy-winning engineer David Glasser at Airshow in Boulder, CO. Stay tuned for details on how to order the 7″ online, or come to my Record Release Party on Dec. 15 at theRockwood Music Hall in NYC’s lower east side! Mark your calendars. See you there.
Thanks for all your support, and see you this fall!
All the best,
jefferson
