Timesbold and Jesse Sparhawk

Timesbold is a group of multi-instumentalists. Some of the group live in Oregon, the rest in the NYC area, and once in a while they get themselves and their many instruments together in one room to perform their elaborate, ragged, heart-felt songs. This time the room is the WNYC Studio, and Timesbold joins host David Garland to set up pump organ, harp, bowed saw, mandolin, double bass, piano, guitars, drums, lo-fi electronics, glockenspiel, and sing songs that have roots in folk, country, and the avant garde. Timesbold's harpist-drummer-mandolinist Jesse Sparhawk puts down those instruments to play us some of his elliptical, surprising solo acoustic guitar compositions.
