  • Folk Alley Sessions: Ana Egge

    • July 10, 2019

    The rain was coming down hard one day in April in Upper Jay, New York. And that’s the day Ana Egge, along with Alec Spiegelman (keyboards, bass clarinet) and Dave Cole (drums) showed up to play songs from her album, White Tiger, at the pop-up studio our friends at Beehive Productions Studio set up at The Recovery Lounge.

  • Folk Alley Sessions: Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves

    • June 14, 2019

    Fiddler Tatiana Hargreaves and banjo player Allison de Groot first started their collaboration over the term “old-time music” and realized, pretty quickly, that their definition of the term was very similar. We like the same kinds of music, they say, and so it was easy to become musical partners and share that love with other music fans. The duo put out a self-titled album in 2019 and they came to Beehive Productions Studios in Saranac Lake, NY to talk about it and about their musical partnership.

  • Folk Alley Sessions at 30A: Caroline Spence

    • May 03, 2019

    Songs are personal, and important, parts of our souls, of our SELVES.

Spence joined us and our friends from Beehive Productions Studios in January at the 30A Songwriters Festival in Florida share some thoughts about her songwriting process…and also to share some new music from her new recording, her first on Rounder Records, called Mint Condition.
