"...expertly blends vintage American roots music styles — from country to jazz to rock—in a rowdy but deft fashion.” Rolling Stone

Hailing from Boston, Session Americana is an all-star band-collective of talented musicians who come together to craft a musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collection of instruments including a collapsible bar table, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello, a harmonica case, and an assortment of other instruments that get passed around in this freewheeling modern hootenanny. The experience of a Session Americana show comes from a musical collaboration that’s not accidental or easily won. The group brings a kind of ease and genuineness to this timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into the depths of the American “song bag”.
