ession Americana is made up of six musicians who have played or recorded with dozens of other local bands and artists, but in their own group they dig up the dirt on four decades of acoustic, foot-stomping red, white, and blue folk, roots, and country.

This local supergroup barges through the door with the swagger of an outlaw folk singer charged up by bluegrass muscle. Wallace
