Treasures Untold is a collection. 10 songs – 6 from the Great American Folksong Book and 4 Tom Brosseau originals recorded live at a private event in Cologne, Germany. Tom Brosseau, his original guitar playing and the voice that NPR calls “one of the most arresting voices in folk music today.” No affectations, no effects, just the goodness of song and story.
Brosseau’s uncanny ability to curate a setlist by feeling the room creates the arc of the album. The sparse instrumental “Empire Builder” bends into a monologue for the city of Cologne, rises to a crescendo with “Today Is A Bright New Day”, and closes with the title song, the immortal Jimmie Rodgers classic “Treasures Untold.” When you listen to this album, you are right alongside.
Treasures Untold will be released Friday, August 25th, 2017 on Crossbill Records, Click on the image below to see Tom perform one of the album’s tracks.
