 Welcome to the Green Room Sessions. Tonight is a casual evening of music at the Freight, featuring some of our favorite under-the-radar musicians and songcrafters playing in-the-round.

 


Jason EadyJason Eady's musical adventures have taken him through lonesome Delta blues, church house harmonies, and poetic Americana, and delivered him to old fashioned country music. His fourth and latest album, AM Country Heaven, is classic country. "Someone’s got to keep it alive," he says, "to preserve that kind of sound. That was our aim with this record.” Born in Mississippi and based in Austin, Jason's strong, melancholy voice and mellow guitar  is perfectly suited to songs about hard times, hard drinking, and lost love. 

 


Aireene EspirituAireene Espiritu is a singer-songwriter based in Oakland and plays a mix of stompin', swayin', and timeless Americana on tenor ukulele. The core of her music is in the storytelling and down to earth vocals inspired by sounds from the South and growing up to her uncles' Filipino folk guitar fingerpicking. The Hobos is a London based four piece alt-folk band with vocals, accordion, banjo, guitar, bass and percussion. By fate Aireene was paired up with The Hobos this spring.  After a European tour they decided to joined forces as Aireene & The Hobos, playing the UK, Germany, and the U.S.

 


Dirty CelloDirty Cello presents a high energy mix of soulful blues, swingin’ gypsy jazz and wild Euro-gypsy dance music. Led by cellist Rebecca Roudman, the band has played the House of Blues, the Hard Rock Café, the De Young Museum, and tours the West Coast, Hawaii, and China. During their high energy live shows, Dirty Cello presents a clap along, danceable mix of music that puts a unique spin on common genres. Whether wailing out the blues with virtuosic skill, getting toes tapping with some gypsy jazz or flying through wild Euro-gypsy music, Dirty Cello puts on an inspiring show.​
