Smart bets: Redleg Husky

Redleg Husky traveled to Conneticut’s Dirt Floor Studios to record its new album, My Old Heart. That establishment delivered on its reputation as an organic environment for roots music making. “We ended up doing three of the tracks live, and the title track was recorded outside. You can even hear the crickets at the very end,” says vocalist, guitarist and banjoist Tim McWilliams. The new songs, he adds, “were written as reflections or, in a way, remedies to heartbreak and loss that we’ve unfortunately had to go through.” As part of an ongoing residency, the trio fill One World Brewing with their self-described “boot-stomping folk music” on the second Wednesday of every month. The next of those performances is the My Old Heart release show on Wednesday, April 13, 8-10 p.m. Carly Taich opens. Photo by Sarene Cullen
