Live performance and chat with House and Land
 
This sweet acoustic duo harmonizes on old hymns and Appalachian folk tunes, using traditional folk resources in an ecstatic setting. Asheville, NC guitarist Sarah Louise Henson with fiddle player Sally Anne Morgan (of Pelt and Black Twig Pickers) began their collaboration after playing a few gigs together, discovering their shared love of this music. House and Land released an album on Thrill Jockey this past summer, and dropped by the studio to record this set for Irene's show.

Good eve, Irene.

Good evening. Already missed a bunch on this set list. Don't often hear these ladies. Not often enough, at least.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:21pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Cooh John and Steve! Good evening to you too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 9:28pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Irene. Do I detect a pumpkin spice motif here?
  Tue. 10/3/17 9:37pm DMZ:

This is great! Thanks for hipping me to Offa Rex and Shirley Collins! I am a longtime Fairport fan - never heard of them!!!

Will this show be available to dowload/online listen later? Archived?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:44pm Irene Trudel:

Ken, tis true. A little spice goes a long way. And, yes, DMZ, the show will be archived as always.
  Tue. 10/3/17 9:44pm DMZ:

thanks. lovin it.

Hi melinda and tuskandhusk! glad you're here to enjoy all this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 10:08pm melinda:

I heard English too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 10:11pm Irene Trudel:

Definitely. But I do love the Appalachian style of tight harmonies. They're very close in style, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 10:16pm melinda:

Yes, that part seems more American. But all related.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 10:17pm Jeff:

Wow, it's fascinating to mentally compare this style of harmony with the Balkan harmonies people like Black Sea Hotel do... some similarities in the lack of any fear of dissonance, but a different flavor (which somebody who knows more about music than I would probably be able to put a finger on - different intervals?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 10:19pm Jeff:

I need to listen to these ladies more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 10:22pm Irene Trudel:

Jeff, I do think many of these vocal traditions have a common thread between them. It's fun to hear how they get absorbed into other cultures. House and Land, plainly beautiful!
  Tue. 10/3/17 10:23pm Bobby:

Whoa this is great.
  Tue. 10/3/17 10:23pm Stevel:

Plainly beautiful, indeed. Very nice!
  Tue. 10/3/17 10:26pm Bobby:

John Fahey playing a guitar is my most favorite of all possible things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 10:30pm Threemoons:

Utterly gorgeous set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 10:38pm northguineahills:

I'll just let Threemoons express my opinions of the music, as they mirror my own.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 10:41pm melinda:

I like this set too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 10:45pm Threemoons:

Blarg. Just got a call from my upstairs neighbor--she was claiming that I was playing this music too loud and I haven't touched the volume on my rig (listening online) in ages. She has cancer that has wandered all over her body though, so I profusely apologized and lowered it. Gotta count your blessings...I feel terrible for her...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 10:49pm Irene Trudel:

Well, when you're not feeling good sometimes even gentle sounds can be irritating. Hope you have some headphones, Threemoons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 10:54pm Threemoons:

Oh, no worries, I already turned it way down. She's a very sweet lady and frankly I am abashed that I caused any trouble....

Hi Irene! whens your Kate Bush show happening!
Avatar Tue. 10/3/17 11:16pm geezerette:

Irene, the emotional warmth and directness of the acoustic music you play is a wonderful thing.
Avatar Tue. 10/3/17 11:17pm Tome:

wonderful show as always Irene , Happy Fall / October !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 11:19pm northguineahills:

@Threemoons: I had once had a neighbor in Brooklyn, who, I've never seen, who was about 50, complain about the bass of my music when I was playing Johnny Cash at 8pm on a Saturday. Considering the more youthful neighbors I had that constantly had parties, I had no idea how she lasted.

When I moved in to my new place, I put my music on 110% volume (it's rarely above 40%), playing bass heavy club music, and asked them if it was too loud. They were fine w/ it. (I do it w/ each new neighbor).
Avatar Tue. 10/3/17 11:21pm Summer and Michael:

Great show, as ever, Irene! Feeling a bit under the changing weather, we made some homemade soup, put on the wildcard game without sound and tuned in/tuned up you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 11:25pm northguineahills:

@Summer and Michael: That's how I always watch sports, while cooking w/ WFMU or my records playing w/ the sound on the game on mute.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 11:28pm northguineahills:

Silly Wizard, new to me. Can't believe it wasn't on that wyeird english folk compilation (13 cdrs) that came out over a decade ago. Thanks Irene, I'm off. Beautiful tones!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 11:32pm Irene Trudel:

Glad you're all enjoying the music tonight! NGH, Silly Wizard have been around a while. One of their members recently passed away. I don't like everything of theirs but every so often a track like that just gets me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 11:38pm Threemoons:

@northguineahills: That's good of you. Frankly, she blasts HER music sometimes--her SO is a member of a well-known 80's band that I shall not name at present--but again, I have full sympathy for her. She has been struggling with bone cancer, which became brain cancer, which is probably why she is so sound-sensitive now. They had a grip on the brain stuff 6 months ago, but these things rarely get better; they either stay in a holding pattern or get worse...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 11:40pm Threemoons:

BTW what IS the WFMU Badge of Courage for pledges?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 11:41pm northguineahills:

paz y nacht, Threemoons!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 11:55pm northguineahills:

When did this Hudson come out?, great lineup and the results are amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 11:57pm Irene Trudel:

Hudson is fairly new. They have a gig at Jazza @ Lincoln Center this Friday and Saturday night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 11:58pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks for tuning in everybody! Catch you next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 11:59pm northguineahills:

Thanks Irene! (Unfortunately, I just moved to FL for a job).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 8:05am Sean in Bristol UK:

Thanks for an awesome show, Irene
