Tuesday Trio: Richard Shindell, Lucky Kaplansky, Dar Williams

I spent a bit of today listening to some of the work of Richard Shindell, Dar Williams, and Lucy Kaplansky. The three were briefly (from 1998 until 2000) the acoustic trio, Cry Cry Cry, that resulted in an eponymously titled album (Razor & Tie Records) comprised largely of cover songs of lesser-known artists. Prior to that, Richard had produced three records under the Shanachie label. In 2000, Shindell and his family moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and recorded Vuelta (Koch Records, 2004). Ricahrd's most recent CD is an astonishing collection of covers called South of Delia which features guest appearances by Lucy Kaplansky, Viktor Krauss, Richard Thompson, Tony Trischka, Eliza Gilkyson and others, and relates to Richard's looking back at the USA through the eyes of an expat.
