It's always hard not to be suspicious of musicians from urban areas who play old-timey and bluegrass music. The suspicion is many times justified, as coffeehouse denizens from Greenwich Village to the Haight have all too often been subjected to the naïvely romantic "I really wish I was a poor Kentucky coal miner, but unfortunately I have a gigantic trust fund" school of overly earnest folk performance. Luckily, there are also musicians who become true disciples of traditional music, managing to selflessly infuse the songs with their own unique and genuine human experience. Brooklyn-born Jody Stecher and his wife Kate Brislin are wonderful examples of the latter. On Stay Awhile, the duo's fourth album together, Stecher and Brislin approach their music with a relaxed simplicity, passion, and off-handed confidence reminiscent of the Carter Family.
