Session Americana with Eleanor Buckland (Lula Wiles)

Europe Tour February/March 2024 Celebrating 20 Years of Session Americana

THE RATTLE AND THE CLATTER • TWENTY YEARS (so far) OF SESSION AMERICANA: Late one Sunday night in October 2003, Session Americana had its first jam around a table in the back of Toad in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Looking back, the group has had a natural, almost inevitable evolution from a loose bunch of friends sitting around swapping songs in a bar, to a hot-ticket weekly residency, to a touring collective. Along the way, the band has made ten records (so far), played clubs and festivals across the U.S. and Europe, and developed deep collaborative bonds with a wide community of musicians. But lets not let them sound too professional! These guys are in it for the fun of playing music. Their diligent avoidance of “shoulds” have led them to a quirky and joyful path through the music world – constantly exploring new collaborations and touring like a band out of time, still searching for a welcoming and homey venue, a long lunch with old friends and a good glass of wine.

Having Eleanor in the band is spectacular. She brings a wealth of experience touring and collaborating, a powerful rhythm guitar style, sophisticated and soulful singing and a pile of great songs. This show is really special!
