Session Americana
OBERON Presents, OBERON Shows
September 27 & October 25, 2017 at 8PM
"Session Americana comes up with some gems, full of folk’s honesty and rock’s urgency."
Boston Globe
PART OF LIVE @ OBERON

Session Americana huddles close to a table wired for sound, with suitcase drums, an electric bass, and a pump organ on the perimeter. With five writers, and all six of these Boston all-stars sharing lead vocals, you never know what’s coming next, only that you can’t wait to find out. After ten years of building audiences and winning awards in Boston, the Northeast, and Europe, 2015’s Folk Alliance exposed the band to the national industry.  Invitations to showcase at the AMAs, join a national booking agency, be the closing act at Sister’s Festival, and play Rocky Mountain Folks Fest followed.

Meet the team:

  • Ry Cavanaugh - His song,  "Lighthouse Light" was released by Mary Black on her last record, Songs for the Steeples.
  • Billy Beard is the drummer on Patty Griffin's "Silver Bell" CD released on Universal Records last year.
  • Dinty Child is a multi-instrumentalist on Rose Cousins Juno-award winning album, "We have Made a Spark”.
  • Jim Fitting was the harmonica player in The The from 1993-1995.
  • Kimon Kirk (bass) co-writes with and occasionally performs with Aimee Mann.
  • Jefferson Hamer won the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Song for his Child Ballads collaboration with Anais Mitchell
