Yellowbirds Out on the Farm


We’ll be living off the memories from this year’s Pickathon for months to come, calling on them in our dark times, summoning the spirit of that summertime shangri-la as we trudge through the winter’s chilled, soggy days. Ahem. Among the souvenirs we brought back from Pendarvis Farm this year was this exclusive performance from Brooklyn’s Yellowbirds, who retreated into the trees with us for a rousing take on “The Ceiling,” taken from this year’s Songs From the Vanished Frontier.

Sam Cohen (formerly of Apollo Sunshine) leads the way for the band, along with Brian Kantor, Josh Kaufman and Annie Nero. Additional spice added by Wayne Hancock’s band, whose music floats in from a distant stage.
