Frank Fairfield & Meredith Axelrod

"Meredith Axelrod and Frank Fairfield will sing the sweetest melodies of yesteryear and transport you musically to 1928 via all your old favorite songs. They perform on various string instruments and they learn all their music from sheet music and recordings that were done in the time that the music was new."

“Fairfield is worthy of your consideration, even if you’ve never heard or considered the old-time music. He plays with a rare integrity, offering up his life in a way that does exactly what folk music must do– it relates the world as the singer sees it, mixing sadness with sweetness, excitement with low-down and miserable depression. This has nothing to do with genre; hip-hop, jazz and rock all feel this way, too. Like the best of it all, Fairfield’s music seems inexorably real and entirely necessary.”

- Grayson Currin, Pitchfork

“A young Californian who sings and plays as someone who’s crawled out of the Virginia mountains carrying familiar songs that in his hands sound forgotten: broken lines, a dissonant drone, the fiddle or the banjo all percussion, every rising moment louder than the one before it.” —Greil Marcus
