Andy Statman and Union Street Preservation Society to Celebrate Live at Rockwood at the Living Room
Emerging Brooklyn Americana group Union Street Preservation Society have confirmed the digital release of a live album featuring mandolin/clarinet virtuoso Andy Statman, Live at Rockwood with Andy Statman. The live recording will be available on iTunes on September 9. The Andy Statman Trio and USPS will celebrate the album’s release a few blocks away from Rockwood at New York’s The Living Room the same evening. The show is slated to start at 7 PM.
Live at Rockwood with Andy Statman was recorded in concert at Rockwood Music Hall in New York, NY, on June 10, 2012 and features Statman on mandolin for the album’s final three tracks (“Drifter’s Joy,” “The Boy Who Turned Into a Fish” and “Going Down The Road Feeling Bad”). The energy-infused performance showcases USPS’ original songwriting as well as inspired interpretations of traditional songs, including “Crazy Blues,” considered by historians to be one of the first blues song ever recorded. Fans can preview the album online.
