FestivaLink.net presents Rayna Gellert & Friends at MerleFest, NC 4/28/07
Rayna was introduced to old time music by her father, Dan, a renowned old-time fiddler and banjo-player. Before joining Uncle Earl, Rayna toured the world with dancer Ira Bernstein, with David Holt & Friends, and as a member of the Freight Hoppers.
In this Cabin set, her song choices range from the traditional English ballad to a traditional West African tune. Her "Friends" are similarly diverse, with Led Zep vet John Paul Jones accompanying her on bass and mandolin, and two members of Toubab Krewe adding African and electric elements.
This set is also available with all of the 2007 performances from the MerleFest Cabin Stage.
You can hear this same bunch as part of the 20th MerleFest Kick Off Jam and the 20th Homecoming Jam.
