Firefly

Brent Berry

In cart Not available Out of stock

A fresh collection of folk rock ballads and jump blues.

Firefly. I used to catch them one at a time and put them in a mason jar on summer nights. Enjoying their sweet light through the night and setting them free in the morning. This collection of songs is a bit like that. Glad I caught them. And even happier to set them free. Made in the winter of 2014 in Taos, New Mexico with Peter Oviatt on banjo and guitar, Giles Shelton on upright bass, Dan Irion on mandolin and Sarah Martinez on guitar as well.
