This is a batch of instrumentals I've had kicking around for awhile. There's some ragtime inspired guitar, banjo drones, stripped down drums, sampled tape hiss, and spoken words. There's a song (Three Little Birds) written for a mandolin ensemble. Another song (Neuse River Tangle) was conceived of as a lost piece from the popular ragtime dance fad tradition of the early 20th century. All of this was recorded at 'The Nest' in Raleigh.
