This past September during Americana Week, Third Man Records and Luck Reunion partnered to bring together both Americana legends and newcomers. The goal was to share in the artists' mutual appreciation for roots based music and see what they could create in a spontaneous situation, a collaborative but immediate live-recording atmosphere.
Parker and Sarah Jarosz recorded two songs for this project, which will be released on March 17th.
Third Man is very excited to release these records on 7" vinyl, digitally on all streaming and download services, as well as your favorite indie record stores March 17.
