Ballake Sissoko and Vincent Segal, making their US debut during globalFEST at Webster Hall yesterday. The duo play an astonishing and beautiful form of Chamber music and epitomize the type of wonder one finds all night, spread out over each of the stages of globalFEST.

Everything Old is New. Again.

Uptown 6 train, Thursday night.

If you wonder where I've been, well, I've been working on a video (with John Ivy) for the amazing and talented Josh Ritter which should be appearing very soon and I've been traveling and performing a lot on my own and with Balthrop, Alabama. I'm gonna try to get back to this here blog, which continues to get a good readership even when I'm not putting new things up for perusal. For now, let me simply say (despite the sad events of the last 24 hours), Happy New Year. Let's keep trying to be better than we are.
