Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer – Recording the Ballads in Nashville

Anais and I spent a few days in Nashville last week with producer Gary Paczosa. We recorded seven of our Child ballads live in the studio. The session went great and we can’t wait to mix and release the record. For those interested, the songs we recorded are:

  • Sir Patrick Spens
  • Willie’s Lady
  • Willie of Winsbury
  • Geordie
  • Tam Lin
  • Riddles Wisely Expounded
  • Clyde Waters
Here’s a shot of us singing the ballads last Fall, taken at Mike and Ruthy’s Folk City at the Cornelia St. Cafe by Gordon Nash.
