Something for the weekend

On 5 June the BIB reported that Seth Mulder & Midnight Run had announced on their Facebook: 'We got to shoot a special video session in Ireland a few days ago. Stay tuned for what’s to come'.

Thanks now to Dave Byrne jr of mygrassisblue.com for this link to a video in which the band visit Mark Cahill's Sound Shop in Drogheda, Co. Louth, to play a snatch of 'Ghostbusters' and a full rendering of their recent single 'My, my, my', with Mark on melodica and piano. The video can also be seen on the Sound Shop Facebook and Ivory Sessions Facebook.

The BIB also mentioned on 6 June the new album Tell 'em you were gold, by Pharis and Jason Romero. The album was released yesterday (17 June) and is available as a 16-track CD or 22-track double LP; samples of all tracks can be heard on the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings website. Smithsonian Folkways have now released on YouTube an eighteen-minute video documentary illustrating the making of the album, including glimpses of the Romeros' lives, their children and friends, their making of songs and instruments, and more. John Reischman (see yesterday's post) is one of the guest musicians on the album. Warmly recommended.
