ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One of the most intriguing things about Raleigh NC-based roots rock Americana band Milagro Saints
is why they have been invited to play at at the far distant (Okemah, Oklahoma) Woody Guthrie Folk Festival not once ( in 2001) but twice  (this July 2013).

"The first time they booked us we had sent them a video of the band playing at an in-store at the legendary Crooked Beat vinyl record store (on South Glenwood Ave. now relocated to DC).
The video had some magic to it because it was so intimate and the aidience were so engaged in the performance. I think the thing that struck the WG fest organizers was this was the kind of spontaneous gathering
Woody enjoyed playing because it was 'real' without the supposed 'glamor' of a stage appearance- bad sound, no lighting, but a genuinely warm hearted event where the audience and the band were all mixed together in a true egalitarian fashion"

So in 2001 we trekked out to Oklahoma kind of like Woody's Dust Bowl Refugees and drove into the time stood still town of Okemah, OK. with its 1930's street archtecture and in the middle of the old storefronts stood our venue The Crystal Theater unchanged from when Woody was rolling down the sidewalk as a kid.

I think a lot of what happens in life is about what you focus on. I'm English
but from the age of 15 I had been obsessed with Dylan and everything that sprang from that interest in terms of his influences and connections including of course WG which led to my
desire to visit the U.S. the land of my musical heroes.

The way it turned out I actually ended up living in US getting my ticket to come here via music, having been signed to NYC based label (TVT) as part of the English rock band The Jack Rubies.

So we stood and played on the rickety wooden stage of the Crystal Theater with its fanulous red curtains and wondered how we had got to this place.

We were pretty shy of course but I got the courage to say hi to Arlo Guthrie backstageand then we were flabbergasted to be asked on stage to sing "Goodnight Irene" with Arlo along with all ther other performers for the fest grand finale.

in true time stood still fashion this year we casually asked if the fest had a spot for us and we soon got an invite.
For many years we had played around with some Guthrie tunes and as a celebration of returning to the festival
we decided to quickly record an EP of his songs
