Our boy @ilovehonkytonk spitting truth and tunes from the new record at @americanafest

On the eve of her @americanafest official showcase, we’re stoked to announce ‘Thanksgiving’—the new EP from @rachelbaiman—coming November 2 on Free Dirt! The four-song collection is music made to inspire an introspective holiday season, with themes of Indigenous rights, home and homelessness, and love in hard times. ‘Thanksgiving’ features some wonderful guests including flatpicking guitar master @molly_tuttle, and marks an intriguing follow up to Baiman’s celebrated full-length ‘Shame’. Catch Rachel’s official AmericanaFest showcase on Thurs, 9/13, 7:30pm at Station Inn!

"In the universe that I live in, the discovery of these recordings by Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard in a dusty closet is something akin to finding some holy relic from the Bible days in some faraway desert" ~ @hissgoldenmessenger

Prepping for hurricanes and @americanafest this week! Excited to have both JP Harris and @rachelbaiman representing the Free Dirt family at AMA this year.
