Album Notes
Radical Yiddish Balkan Folk! The music of the Inner Fire District combines seemingly disparate elements of Eastern European folk music, revolutionary working class agit-prop, Brechtian cabaret, and Jewish melodies inspired by the longing of wanderers. Inner Fire District was founded in Burlington in 2006 by accordionist, singer, and composer David Symons and multi-instrumentalist Tim Lang and now comprises Symons (accordion, vocals), Lang (guitars, accordion, whistling), Jennie Lavine (clarinet), John Thompson-Figueroa (bass, tuba), and Chris Schroth (drums).

This album was lovingly recorded in New Orleans, the adopted home city of wanderers Symons and Lavine. Lang and Thompson-Figueroa journeyed south from the band's birthplace of Burlington, VT, and Schroth made his way from Brooklyn, NY. The album would not have been possible without the well attuned ear and calming presence of Matthew Shilling, recording and mixing engineer. We are also grateful to Brett Hughes for mastering. He shared these kind words with us at the end of the process, "I loved working on this project - the music has been taking up much of the sonic space in my head for a week, it's beautiful, haunting, amazing." Endless production hour props also go to Symons, who saw the project from start to finish. Finally, for helping with graphic design in the 11th hour, a big shout out to visual artist Stephanie Reed.

This band's repertoire, style and soul have developed over the course of more than a decade, and thanks are due to all those who have played with and supported Inner Fire District over the years. We especially recognize the contributions of Zoe Christiansen and Tyler Bolles.
