GOOD LUCK TO SWEET TOOTH NELSON and BRETT LAND, his banjo-playing buddy – who are leaving our sweet shores – well, Bushwick, to take on the rest of the country – well, the Northeast coast, for a month-long tour. We caught their farewell gig, and tape launch party – at NORTHEAST KINGDOM, last night, where they and some of their Folk Revival buddies – rocked the ‘den’.
SWEET TOOTH NELSON and JESS PAPS – capture the folk fire at the Northeast Kingdom – underground ‘den’.
