-- Jeremy Brecher --

I start this blog with one of my most dear musical influences...

Jeremy is an old friend who lives in a log cabin in W Cornwall, Connecticut and writes on labor, history and politics for progressive journals such as The Nation and Z Magazine. He also happens to have an amazing deep voice and knows an astonishing number of folk songs. When he plays it's like a history lesson: he will usually introduce some back history - where a song came from, what the sometimes odd and obscure lyrics mean - He's the real deal, and one of my favorite people to walk the earth. I took this photo of him when I recorded him a few summers ago on the back porch of my family's place in W Cornwall, CT. Note mic-lampstand.

Here's Jeremy singing an Elizabeth Cotton song "Babe It Ain't No Lie"
