Terry, I've already come to look forward to your daily posts. You need a regular gig. Good stuff!

Sing, the Tinkler's praises! Chris Mason is truly bringing the old songs back...

old songs is one of my favorite musical acts, thanks for writing so glowingly about them

Chris Mason and Old Songs are a brilliantly kept Baltimore secret that more people need to know about. We cherish this stuff and thank you for getting the word out.

Thanks for this. You make me homesick!

bringing the old songs back to life

translating the ancient poems of
Sappho, Aeschylus, Euripides
& my fav Archilocus

as well as lesser lyrics about
those treacherous, warring, slave-owning Greeks of Attica & the Peloponnesus

of democracies turned empire
& oligarchies run amuck

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
