Red House Records
25th Anniversary Tour 2008
With the recorded music business in transition, it’s the rare record label that can claim both a proud 30+ year history AND a positive stance toward its future: continuing to release recordings by its most seasoned artists and continuing to develop and record singer-songwriters for the next generation.
The 25th Anniversary Tour recordings present both sides of Red House, with performances by label vets Eliza Gilkyson, Greg Brown, and Lucy Kaplansky, plus tunes from newer converts to the label like the Pines and the Wailin’ Jennys.
Beginning in its hometown of St Paul with a show at the Fitzgerald Theater, the Red House Anniversary Tour went coast to coast, presenting most of the label’s current artists at festivals, clubs and theaters.
Many of the shows were recorded, and segments are offered here, presenting Red House artists doing what they do best: interpreting their original compositions.
