You know the drill. A little while ago, two fine young men, Kenny Eaton and Jordan Miller, approached us with an idea for a partnership: Bring bands into Kenny’s Mystery Ton Studios, ask them to record a song, sit them down for an interview, video everything, and release all of it to the masses. Manning the cameras, of course, would be Jordan, along with his Gypsy Cab crew, and we would call the thing “Frederick One Take.”
This is typically where we run down through all the other episodes, recapping each guest and providing a link … but that list is becoming too long to constantly mention. So, instead, we’d love to encourage you to take a look at the Frederick One Take tag on this very website, or to head over to our YouTube channel to have a look at all the other wonderful videos that have come out of this tiny project. Frederick has some awfully remarkable musical talent in and around its parameters, you know.
Anyway, this month, we have local country music/Americana/bluegrass act Michelle Hannan & One Blue Night performing a song that has the greatest first line ever recorded on a Frederick One Take: “You didn’t only break my heart, you hurt my liver, too.” The tune is called “Another Round” and we were pleased as punch that they could take time out of their busy schedule to come by Mystery Ton Studios (with a brand new drummer, even!). It’s worth noting that this fine group of musicians will be playing the main stage (Carroll Creek Amphitheater) at this year’s installment of The Thing, which is set to go down Saturday, Oct. 6. This is pertinent information right now because today (that’s Wednesday, Sept. 19, for those keeping score) is the final day you can save a whole bunch of money on a wristband that will get you into every show throughout the day. Where can you go to save that whole bunch of money? You can go right here, thank you very much. And after you go there, you can check out Michelle Hannan & One Blue Night’s Facebook page and Twitter account to get up to date on all the goings-on of those fine, fine individuals. They won’t let you down, we promise.
