From the out-of-limbo file — Tim O’Brien played Kirk Avenue Music Hall on Sept. 21. Joining him for a portion of his set was Australian banjo man Mark Collins, an audiophile traveling to the states for a piece of vintage recording gear.
Collins and O’Brien had met in Colorado, O’Brien told the standing room only crowd at Kirk Ave. Obviously, the two have a musical rapport, as you’ll see on this video.
Speaking of the video, this is one of several I shot recently with a Canon HD rescued from limbo in The Roanoke Times multimedia room. It took forever to get it compatible with my computer — thanks, Jared Davis from IT — but now that it’s working, I’ll be uploading several things I shot during the fall, including some great stuff from Todd Snider at The Sanctuary.
Back to the show at hand — Bill Monroe’s “Roanoke,” appropriately enough, and O’Brien’s own “Look Down That Lonesome Road.”
