DOWNLOAD: Gary Higgins - I Can't Sleep at Night (MP3)

Gary Higgins Red Hash "During one forty-hour period in 1973, folk musician Gary Higgins and his band of five -- guitarist Jake Bell, cellist Maureen Wells, keyboardist Terry Fenton, mandolin/flutist Paul Tierney and bass player Dave Beaujon -- laid down one of the saddest, loveliest acoustic recordings you'll ever hear, the now semi-legendary Red Hash...." [Splendid]

Gary's story resembles in many ways fellow re-emerged folkie Vashti Bunyan (who also has some shows coming up). Gary's first show "in decades" took place on July 23rd, 2005 at Tonic in NYC. He played at least one more show in Chicago later that year. The shows coincided with the Drag City reissue of Red Hash.

This month Gary is playing three more shows:

Fri, Jan 19 - New York, NY @ Mercury Lounge (TIX)
Fri, Jan 26 - New London, CT @ Oasis
Sat, Jan 27 - Providence, RI @ AS220

You can buy "Red Hash" @ Amazon.

His story also somewhat parallels MF Grimm's. Well, only in the manner in which he recorded his album (before a stint in prison). Fuck the fuzz.
