Local band draws on sound of American, eastern European folk music

Providence, RI – Brown Bird is a locally-based folk, Americana band. Their sound draws on influences from Appalachian, gypsy and shanty music, and features the sometimes somber lyrics of lead singer David Lamb. Lamb, joined by cellist MorganEve Swain and steel guitarist Mike Samos, recently sat down with Morning Edition host Bob Seay to discuss their music.
