The 78 Project: Leah Siegel + Laura Burhenn + Dawn Landes and more

City Winery , West Village Sunday May 20 2012 20:00
Fans of crackly old vinyl, come hither: The 78 Project has been field-recording musicians around NYC singing public-domain songs into a 1930s direct-to-disc acetate recorder, just like the old days. Tonight is a live outing for the project, where Leah Siegel of Firehorse, the Mynabirds' Laura Burhenn and Hem singer Dawn Landes, among others, will all make live recordings at the Winery. There's also a silent auction, where acetates by Rosanne Cash and Richard Thompson (among others) will go under the hammer. Hold that sneeze, folks…
