With the backing of extraordinary musicians who also revel in songs long forgotten and little known, Of a Winter’s Night will feature music from the 1844 Sacred Harp book, the Revolutionary era and old-time fiddle music, as well as Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, classically influenced carols and hard-driving bluegrass.
One of the most influential banjo players in the roots music world, Trischka will be joined by by multi-instrumentalist and shape-note singer Tim Eriksen (Cold Mountain), vocalist and fiddle player Zoe Darrow, his longtime bassist Skip Ward and son Sean Trischka on drums.
Tony Trischka has released two holiday records, Of a Winter’s Night (2014, Rounder) and Glory Shone Around (1995, Rounder).
