The blurb in the page you linked to cracks me up…

"Ok. Each of these musicians has played the Backroom Series before and so memorably! But to think this new grouping will come together and be part of the new season is just thrilling. What! I can hardly imagine what this will sound like."

What!

I heard what it sounded like at Swannanoa this summer, where each of the three was teaching, and it was very good, indeed! I hope they make it to the Pacific Northwest.

@teagan: I think they meant to say "wicked!" Sometimes the copy editors don’t get it.

@5string: I’ll plan to donate it to a scalper. Problem is everyone in this neighborhood looks like a scalper, so some nice ordinary person could pretend to be a scalper and rip me off.

@will, yes the album is quite nice. I don’t get the name, but dont tell me ….

Rosemarie: Where did you score the album? I can’t find it anywhere.

If you are into folk song, this band is the finest exponent of the genre I have ever heard in my life.
