Old-school Baltimore/DC weirdos/luminaries Mark Jickling (Half Japanese, circa '81-90), Elizabeth Downing (Lurch and Holler, &c.), and Chris Mason (The Tinklers) phone it in from Baltimore, MD. An apter band name you couldn't come up with: Old Songs sing 7-4th Century BC Greek poems set to old-time Appalachian music. Literally, some of the oldest songs, intoxicatingly married to archaic American music. My Big Fat Greek Hoedown? OK, that was a bad joke, but Old Songs' music is anything but!
