Spirit Family Reunion Perform "Alright Prayer," "100 Greenback Dollar Bills" and "On That Day"

More of "the ready-to-break Brooklyn band" Spirit Family Reunion, whom No Depression's Ernie Hill says "concentrates on deep, subtle spiritual lyrics heavily influenced by traditional mountain string band music, with drums, an occasional accordion and lots of soul. Not preachy at all," Mr. Hill continues, "just tastefully rousing and raucous. Without copying, their music reminds me of a blend of the Felice Bros, Old Crow Medicine Show, and even John Prine." My Old Kentucky Blog is quoted as hailing their music as having "the fervor of a tent revival with the wallop of a bare-knuckle brawler."

Commenters seem to taken by the "little lady banjo pi[c]ker," calling her an "instant favorite." The missus and I'll see this "best Banjo pickin['] girl" and the rest of the band for ourselves this Tuesday.

Quite humbled. Not only do you find a great roots band, but one from Brooklyn that I didn't even know about!
