Spirit Family Reunion

Spirit Family Reunion have made a video for the trad-bluegrass style "Put Your Hands Together When You Spin The Wheel" off this year's Hands Together, which premieres in this post. The video includes footage of the band at Newport Folk Fest, Columbus Theatre (Providence, RI), the Sinclair (Cambridge, MA), and Mountain Jam. It was filmed by Chris Brunelle & Stephen Ward and edited by Dustin Reid. Check it out below.

As we recently mentioned, the band is also throwing their own festival here in Brooklyn called the Spirit Family Reunion Harvest Festival on September 24 & 25 at Union Pool. Regarding the lineup, the band tells us: "[It] consists of some of our favorite acts, both local and cosmic, we've encountered over the years ranging from avant country to North African dance music. Each night will start out with solo performers and culminate with a full band dance party after we play." Here's the schedule:
