In October 2003, Session Americana had its first jam around a table in the back of Toad, a music club in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The group evolved from a loose bunch of friends sitting around swapping songs in a bar to a hot-ticket weekly residency and touring collective. Along the way, the band has made nine records (so far), played clubs and festivals across the United States and Europe, and developed deep collaborative bonds with a wide community of musicians. Session Americana’s diligent avoidance of typical music business practices has led the band down a quirky and joyful path through the music world. The result is evident in the musical prowess the players and singers bring to every show. Swapping instruments, trading off lead vocals, and sharing songwriting credits, Session Americana is constantly exploring new collaborations and touring like a band out of time, always searching for a welcoming and homey venue, a long lunch with old friends, and a good glass of wine. Celebrate their 20th anniversary at the MFA.
