Arrived in NYC and my first stop was the Record Shop. A place that is still making history happen.
I got to play a set with Jaimie Breezy Branch which turned out to be a CD Release of Dropping Stuff and Other Folk Songs a trio adventure with Ig Henneman that came out last summer on Catalytic Sound.
Ig was not able to attend due to the unreasonable and frustrating VISA hoops the US makes foreign musicians jump through to come here.
Playing with Jaimie is like walking through a conversation that feels like home and outer space all at once. Would love to have a next time.
Many thanks to the Record Store in Red Hook and all the musicians who played that night.
