Vincent Cross sends September news from New York

Thanks to Vincent Cross in New York for his September Global Newsletter, which includes a report on his recent solo tour of Australia; details of this year's Parkslope Jamboree (27 Sept.) in Brooklyn; and a feature on New-York-based bluegrass singer/songwriter Jen Larson (photo) and her guitars in his 'Tools of the trade' series. Videos on all three subjects are in the newsletter. Vincent writes:

I'm still buzzing after my recent return from my first solo tour of Australia. The warm response from the many folks that put me up, fed me, and pointed me to the next gig was overwhelming. I cannot wait to return! Thanks to everyone who made it possible.

The Parkslope Jamboree, now in its fifteenth year, is part educational, part performance, bringing together explorers of the sources of traditional music, contemporary songwriters and performers seeking inspiration, and people who want to pick, or to learn how to pick. Vincent will give an introductory roots-writing workshop from 1.50 to 3.00 p.m., as well as performing in the concert series at 6.00 p.m.

The video in the Jen Larson feature shows her singing her song 'Fourth man in the fire' with a band comprising Michael Daves (guitar), Noam Pikelny (banjo), Barry Mitterhoff (mandolin), Brittany Haas (fiddle) and Paul Kowert (bass).
