Hello dear people, here goes..

Tonight, Jan 13 Singing Show at Barbes 7-9PM 376 9th St (corner of 6th Ave) Park Slope 718 965 9177 www.barbesbrooklyn.com
Jenny Scheinman (vocals/violin), Robbie Gjersoe (acoustic guitar/vocals), Adam Levy (electric guitar/vocals)
Guess what? Adam just got married – he tied the knot Friday.. It took us all by surprise! It was the shortest elopement in history! 5 blocks! we must toast together!.. One of the most blissful tours I had last year was with these two fellows playing with and opening for Jimmie Dale Gilmore. Adam Levy and I have been playing together since the beginning, he’s toured with Norah Jones, has a whole catalog of solo instrumental and vocal recordings, and coaxes pure magic from the strings of his electric guitar. Robbie was born with a slide on his finger and has toured and recorded with outlaw country artists Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, The Flatlanders, The Greencards and Robbie Fulks. We’ll sing harmonies of the three-part variety and attempt to play our asses off..

Rodney Crowell Tour: This is the last leg of a Rodney Crowell tour that, with a few weeks off here and there, started last August in Nashville. We will be singing and playing songs from his grammy nominated album “Sex And Gasoline” as well as songs from the OED-length Rodney Crowell Songbook. If you are not familiar with Rodney, he grew up in east Texas, penned many of the great Emmylou Harris hits, was in her band for a long stretch several decades ago, produced many records and more children with ex-wife Rosanne Cash, is one of the great American songwriters. For the show in Philly and all of Europe we will be an acoustic trio – Rodney (words/guitar), Will Kimbrough (guitar, harmony vocals), me (fiddle, violin – he calls me the fiddlin’ violinist! – and harmony vocals). For Bay Shore, Chatham and NYC we will be joined by my main man (I DO feel like a gloating match maker!) Tim Luntzel on bass, and two special guests, Rosanne Cash and Minton Sparks. And for all shows except Lincoln Center Will and I will open with a set of our songs.
