Nearly a decade after folk-rock duo Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion put out their first album together, the husband-and-wife pair feel like they’ve finally hit their stridewith their latest album Wassaic Way. Wassaic Way finds Guthrie and Irion pushing further beyond the folky sound they established on 2005’s Exploration, the live album Folksong in 2009 and the children’s collection Go Waggaloo in 2009, the pair began expanding their sonic horizons on 2011’s Bright Examples, an album that drew praise from American Songwriter magazine for its “lush, dreamy sound.” Wassaic Way is also the latest entry in an ongoing creative relationship between the Guthrie family and Wilco. Sarah Lee is the daughter of Arlo Guthrie, and the granddaughter of the iconic folk singer Woody Guthrie, whose unfinished songs Wilco recorded with Billy Bragg on a pair of Mermaid Avenue albums in 1998 and 2000.

Miss Tess & the Talkbacks are best described as making grooving modern vintage music that nods to the traditions of saloon jazz, country swing, early p, and New Orleans second line. Citing inspiration from artists such as Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, Neil Young, Ted Hawkins, Randy Newman, and Hank Williams, Miss Tess & The Talkbacks have an eclectic “jazz-infused old-time country, swing, and rockabilly” (Pulse Magazine) sound that marries vintage charm and modern music aesthetics.

Grasshopper Sparrow
Grasshopper Sparrow
Northwest Park has two male Grasshopper Sparrows singing in the Park's "Long Field." These birds are endangered and the Park has spent much time and money to prepare the fields as grasslands to attract this species. We give recognition to these folks for finding the birds:: Brian Kleiman, Laura Boglisch, and Jamie Meyers. The photos are by Ford Parker
