Tim O’Brien is back at the Rubin as part of his highly anticipated album release tour. His new recording,Pompadour, features six new originals; covers of songs by Woody Guthrie, James Brown, Michael Hurley, and Dan Reeder; plus a traditional fiddle tune. Get ready for banjo and guitar sounds, funk and swing grooves, and even a couple of love songs. As fellow musician Mark Knopfler says, O’Brien is “a master of American folk music, Irish music, Scottish music—it doesn’t matter; a fine songwriter and one of my favorite singers.”
