Session Americana is a rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This band/collective of talented musicians craft an musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello made by a college room-mate-turned-luthier, a harmonica case fire damaged when Jack's bar went up in flames and graffitied by Depeche Mode roadies, and an assortment of other instruments get passed around in this freewheeling modern hootenanny. The anything-could-happen feel of a Session show depends on craft that's not accidental or easily-won; they bring a kind of ease and genuineness to this timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs and sometimes reaching back into depths of the American "song bag".

Session America is an absolute must-see, must-hear.
