Eden And John's East River String Band Take A Look At That Baby on Colored LP
Eden and John’s East River String Band have been playing, releasing albums and touring America and Europe since way back in the days of old, around 2006 to be exact. The brain child of John Heneghan, Eden Brower was soon lured into the duo with promises of chocolate, a National Resonator Uke and her name being before John’s in their lengthy moniker. They play a vast spectrum of traditional American blues, country and pop music ranging from the late 19th to the early 20th Century.
With John on vocals, guitar and mandolin and Eden on vocals, guitar, kazoo and the aforementioned resonator Uke, their love and reverence of old music shines through in every song. They have released four albums and often have special guests sitting in with them for their recordings and live performances, including Robert Crumb, the famed underground cartoonist who also does all the artwork for the band.
The East River String Band has several projects coming out in 2013 including the new album Take a Look at That Baby featuring Robert Crumb (Cheap Suit Serenaders), Pat Conte & Joe Belluovich (Otis Brothers), Dom Flemons (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Ernesto Gomez (Brotherhood of the Jug), and Jackson Lynch (Down Hill Strugglers). In addition to appearing on the record, Robert Crumb once again contributed the iconic cover artwork.
“Eden And John cover country blues from the 78-rpm era with crisp fervor and a natural flair that suggests loving study and a respect for the original records.” - David Fricke, Rolling Stone
