A couple of weeks back we saw a Canadian gentleman by the name of Craig Bjerring perform as Oldseed. Now living in Germany, Craig’s music swims in the same alt-country waters as Iron & Wine, Bon Iver, nodding respectfully to Townes Van Zandt, Waylon Jennings, and others from the genre’s glorious, troubled past.
He was supporting Scott Kelly of Neurosis who’s released a covers album of Townes Van Zandt songs. We hope to bring Oldseed back to the UK later this year but meantime, here’s some pictures from the shows, and two songs; the beautiful ‘Saving Throw vs Illusion’ and ‘Net’. You can listen to others here.
