Ways To Connect

It took Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell nearly four decades to get around to making their first duets album, Old Yellow Moon, and just two years to follow it with The Traveling Kind. Their collaborative debut may have swept two of the biggest awards in their genre — a Best Americana Album Grammy and Album Of The Year at the Americana Awards — but there were more powerful incentives for them to team up again.

Chazwick Bradley Bundick, better known by his stage name Toro y Moi, is an American recording artist and producer who is out on the road in support of his latest release What For?

They recently finished their self-titled release.

The cd release show is coming up at Woodlands Tavern on Saturday May 9.

These guys also have a show coming up at the Summer Camp Music Festival on May 21.
