New limited 7" split vinyl with Samantha Crain and an update for autumn solo performances.
For the first release of the Clerestory split 7” series, Samantha Crain recorded a stunning version of the traditional song “Wild Mountain Thyme”, and John Calvin Abney covered the John Hartford classic “First Girl I Loved”. Both songs were collaborative, with John adding guitar and other instrumentation to Samantha’s track, and Samantha providing background vocals for John’s track. Recorded in Oklahoma City at Stowaway Recording, the songs came together easily and calmly in the springtime of 2018. You can preorder the limited (300 exist only!) seafoam green 7" vinyl HERE from Clerestory AV's website.
