Steve and a host of his pals (including Little Silver’s Ray Rizzo) will perform Willie Nelson’s cowboy operetta “Red Headed Stranger” at Joe’s Pub in NY, NY on Saturday November 26th. Michael Arthur will be on hand to “live-illustrate” the tale of love and betrayal as it unfolds.
This record has gotten a staggering amount of play on Little Silver’s combined stereos and assorted devices through the years, and it’s a great honor to give it a whirl at a spot like Joe’s Pub. Tickets are here, and the Facebook event is here. If you’re at ease with food and family gatherings, come give thanks with us!
I believe we, Little Silver, began recording this album in February of 2014, moments before our second daughter was born. Needless to say her arrival set us back some, and it’s just now that we’re putting the finishing touches on this full-band, full-length record.
Recording over 2.5 years means that some songs have come and gone and some new ones have taken their place; the result is a swirly, lush, driving, evocative odyssey. On this gray, cold and oddly beautiful October day, I couldn’t be more excited about the moment when we bring this collection your way, so stay tuned!
We sing a host of songs, traditional and non, with a songbook for all to follow and it’s a big ol’ sing-and-play-along. Bring an instrument and your voice, or just come listen as you pore (pour? ha!) over Threes Brewing’s comprehensive beer list.
We last hosted one of these back in November and everyone left with a happy feeling and that sometimes needed reminder that music is for everyone. If you’re thinking about it, you need not any longer – come!
The Three Ring Bender Presents: The Hootenanny!

Threes Brewing – 333 Douglass Street in Brooklyn
Ray and I very pleased to announce our monthly residency, called the Three Ring Bender, at Threes Brewing! Each month we’ll learn a bunch of songs — or just plain play them regardless of our level of learning — and invite a musical conspirator out on a limb with us. Early confirmed guests include Pete Galub, Sohrab Habibion, and Annie Nero. Come see how we fare….
Just received this fan-video of “Salvador Sanchez” (a Sun Kil Moon cover) from a house concert we played in San Francisco two years ago! Thanks Chris – it was fun to hear one of those ‘Dress Up’ tunes in action.
Aaaaaaannnnnd, a 3 year old photo I came across from our friends’ wedding in the Adirondacks. Just ’cause.
Both the J train and the rain were well-timed overhead, and we had a total ball. Here we are shaking our booty, and celebrating a wedding anniversary and several successive years of shows at this stupendous garden, a totally out-of-time and out-of-place spot in Bushwick. The kindest folks around in attendance. Happy end of summer!
We recorded an album’s worth of basic tracks this spring at Brooklyn’s Mission Studios in Brooklyn. It was the first time that we’ve had the chance to really settle in for several days of recording with Ray and David, and we wanna do it again, like right now. So fun (and Erika was even 8 months pregnant…). Here’s a link to a photo gallery, all courtesy of Patrick McNulty. Links to music coming before long!

CoolDad Music asked Erika what we liked in 2013, and she put together this list that spans both our taste, and even notes where it overlaps :). ‘Twas a very good year!
