From their website (where one can download nine songs*)
This is Andy Reiner from The Earth Stringband!  We’re all beyond excited to travel to Southeast Asia on The Rhythm Road produced by The State Department and Jazz at Lincoln Center.  If you are reading this, you are in the same place that each member of the band will be posting text, videos, and pictures of the people we meet and the places we go.  We’ll be travelling to Laos, Thailand, Burma (Myanmar), East Timor, and South Korea.  We hope you will follow our travels as well as download our free album (though please feel free to donate!)  We’re leaving on September 8th and returning on October 11th so expect this site to be updated with new posts every chance we get!  Thank you and come back soon for updates!
Join the Earth Stringband on the rhythm road....

*All songs were recorded Live in Boston, MA and engineered, mixed and mastered by Andy Reiner, Fiddle Barn Productions.
While we are offering this full album for free download in order to reach as many people as possible from around the world, we are full time musicians who make our livings entirely from music.  We poured our hearts, souls, and time into making this music.  - so if you wish to help support us, we are providing this Donate button and we greatly appreciate your support.  Your money goes directly to the band and their livelihood.

When it rains it pours, two posts in one day (the usual frequency is one or two per month).

From the good people at Smithsonian-Folkways Records.

October 11 – The Mickey Hart Collection (25 albums)
Available digitally for the first time, the collection preserves and furthers the Grateful Dead percussionist's endeavor to cross borders and expand musical horizons.


David Greely (Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys) & Joel Savoy (The Savoy Family Band) - the GreelySavoyDuo  - have several New England gigs leading up to their appearance at the Rhythm and Roots festival.  Highly recommend getting to one or more of them.
