Out August 25th on Crossbill Records on 180 gram clear, special edition vinyl, the album is a collection of 10 songs – 6 from the Great American Folksong Book and 4 Brosseau originals – recorded live at a private event in Cologne, Germany and serves as a document to the power and honesty of his live performance.
Tom Brosseau, his original guitar playing and the voice that NPR calls “one of the most arresting voices in folk music today.” No affectations, no effects, just the goodness of song and story.
Brosseau’s uncanny ability to curate a setlist by feeling the room creates the arc of the album. The sparse instrumental “Empire Builder” bends into a monologue for the city of Cologne, rises to a crescendo with “Today Is A Bright New Day”, and closes with the title song, the immortal Jimmie Rodgers classic “Treasures Untold.” When you listen to this album, you are right alongside.
