“Ragged Old Town” (by Brown Bird)
The Rhode Island folk duo stopped by the WFMU studios on a recent trip to New York when they were in town to play at Le Poisson Rouge. David Lamb and MorganEve Swain are able to tap into that dark strain of the rural American tradition and produce songs of beautiful melancholy, but they also manage to pull off some stomp-worthy old timey tunes that wouldn't have sounded out of place eighty years ago. Listen and see why an appearance at the 2011 Newport Folk Festival has finally brought them some well-deserved attention. - DJ Jeffrey
