One of Nippertown’s finest acoustic roots music duos, Lost Radio Rounders are headed into the famed Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs on Friday evening, and as usual they’ve got something special planned for the occasion.
In the past, LRR – the duo of Tom Lindsay and Michael Eck – have performed such special concert programs as “The Gospel Train: Historic American Spiritual & Religious Music,” “Lincoln And Liberty: Songs From The Time Of Honest Abe,” “Wildwood Flower: Songs Of The Original Carter Family” and “American Favorite Ballads: Songs From Folkways.”
This time around, they’re delving into the rich musical legacy of one of America’s great poets and folk song collectors with “Carl Sandburg’s American Songbag.” Expect to hear such classics as “The Midnight Special,” “John B. Sails,” “Shenandoah” and “Turkey in the Straw,” all culled from Sandburg’s timeless “American Songbag,” first published in 1927.
