The Hands Free
The Hands Free is James Moore (guitar / banjo), Caroline Shaw (violin), Nathan Koci (accordion) and Eleonore Oppenheim (bass). You may think it’s folk music from some old American past that you just can’t put your finger on, but it isn’t. The Hands Free freely pick and choose a few sounds and gestures we might recognize from bluegrass or jazz and then they twist them into something new, and tuneful, and strange. And very joyful.
