“I enjoy writing songs that could have been written before [my time]. When I feel like I'm tapping into a deep vein in the body of American music, it gives me strength as a writer, like I'm dipping my pen into a deep ink well. That's the folk music tradition. Like Pete Seeger said, 'Everyone's a link in the chain.' It's a strong chain, so rely on it. ... I believe it takes all those great songs in the past to make your song even a little bit good.” ~Ketch Secor.
I couldn’t agree more. New York, New York! Had a fantastic first day in the city which started off with an amazing rehearsal. So lucky to get to play a gig here with such talented musicians. This Wednesday, April 18 come join us at Paddy Reilly’s Music Bar, 8pm.

Among most people’s favourites on @theshanerichie’s new album. “Bit of a classic” co-written by #BobDylan & #KetchSecor of @old_crow_medicine_show. There’s a few great covers including the amazing @dariusrucker but #ShaneRichie ’s version stands up so well alongside all of them. Love it! Thank goodness it made the album! ❤️ LISTEN to Shane talk about Wagon Wheel on this link or on his @facebook:
Tonight, my husband and I saw the Old Crow Medicine Show perform Bob Dylan’s 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde at the Winspear Opera House. But, in my house, I sing Old Crow songs to my 8 month old son, River Williams, every single morning while preparing our breakfast. Won’t it be fun to share the story of this gift with him one day! From the bottom of my ❤️, thank you @crowmedicine! #jlparish#oldcrowmedicineshow#ketchsecor#blondeonblonde#tomboharmonica
