The Brooklyn based string band M Shanghai String Band has a new record out called From The Air. The new record’s on Red Parlor Records (Chris Whitely, David Olney) and features banjo, violin, and guitar. The sound is equal part bluegrass vocal harmonies, combined with Eastern European string band, mixed with Appalachian storytelling folk. It’s an odd and compelling combination that has made this band a must see live event.
