Lebo Jenkins - Couch's Barn and Fretless

Jeff's barn has been a chapel to me through the last year. A place for cleaning the harvest, relaxing after a hard days work, pickin out some tunes with the family, conversation, silence, seed spitting, smiling, crying, meditating, falling in love, reading, writing and so much more. He built this barn with trees he chopped down off the land he has put so much love into and milled the wood himself just ten years ago. The entire farm's energy seems meet up for a contra dance every day amongst the slatted walls and that is the very reason I made this collection on cold rainy morning.
Decided to leave the tracks raw as recorded since it fits the barns vibe.
Thanks Annukai and Pappa Bare. I still don’t own a computer and know how to get the sounds from my field recorder out to the rest of the world.

Lebo Jenkins - Couch's Barn and Fretless

I met Lebo Jenkins in early spring when he was organizing and playing on an event with Moses Nesh and Sarah Louise in Atlanta. 

He knows a lot about old-time music, banjos, old pickers and he likes to tell stories. He can scratch tunes out of a fiddle and plays the guitar as well. 

Beside of picking original songs out of his resonator guitar on "Couch's Barn and Fretless" he's performing renditions of more or less known classics like "Goodbye Booze" or "Coo Coo". 

Download this free album and check out his new album "Careless Love" that just got released here on Dying For Bad Music. If you are in the Atlanta area, check the schedule of the Mammal Gallery, maybe you can catch him there or at some backporch jam/barn dance.
