Session Americana is a Boston-based rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a harmonica case fire damaged when Jack's bar went up in flames and graffitied by Depeche Mode roadies, and an assortment of other instruments that get passed around in this freewheeling modern hootenanny. The anything-could-happen feel of a Session show depends on craft that's not accidental or easily won; they bring a kind of ease and genuineness to timeless Americana music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American "song bag".
