Nora Brown “The Very Day I’m Gone” – take those trains no more

Want that authentic folk sound?  Then record your new album in mono, live to tape in a large 19th century vaulted stone cellar, below the streets of Brooklyn.  It’ll give you that raw and immediate quality of a folkloric field recording. If at the same time you can play banjo and sing, whilst arranging a well-known song into a haunting new shape then so much the better. That’s what Nora Brown has done.  Oh, and she’s only fifteen – and already has a lot of appearances under her belt – including NPR Tiny Desk, Washington Square Park Folk Festival, Brooklyn Folk Festival, as well as month-long residencies at Barbès in Brooklyn NY.  Got a feeling we’ll be hearing more from Nora Brown.

Her album ‘Sidetrack My Engine‘ is out on Friday 24th September.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
