Album Notes
The Susquehanna Hat Company has come a long way, both literally and figuratively, from its humble beginnings. Inspired by playing old-time, bluegrass, klezmer and other Eastern European songs, banjo-ist Adam Kobetich and accordionist Mila Ringo formed SHC to fit just such a purpose. We were soon joined by Michael Rubin on bass harmonica, thus creating the triangle of power which stands strong to this day.
Summer in Texas calls for escapes to cooler climates, and so in 2011 SHC members bid adieu and traveled far and wide across the country. Adam undertook a monumental solo bicycle tour to North Carolina, while Mila and her trusty dog drove to Washington. After a few months, upon reconvening back in Austin, both Adam and Mila were brandishing armfuls of new material; original songs about and inspired by our travels. Unwittingly we had created the cornerstone of what was to become the trademark of SHC - tales of love and lust, wanting and woe; of strange lands and mysterious folks far and away.
In 2012 SHC was joined by fiddler Austin Smith and thus became the solid thunder-bringin' quartet that it is today. With an ever-mounting repertoire of original songs, the natural next step was to record it once and for all and thus release our very first album.
We rehearsed and fine-tuned; we even made chord charts. Finally we were ready! Armed with instruments, we stepped into a lovely east Austin house with hardwood floors, where we recorded over several days with the multi-talented Jeff Luna. The result? 12 home-spun songs, recorded and mixed and then sent off to be mastered by Thomas van der Brook.
