Works Progress Administration (CD & Tour)

5th Aug 09 (Wed) Leave a comment

As previously reported, Glen Phillips (of Toad the Wet Sprocket) and members of Nickelcreek have a new album coming out in 2009.  September 15th, to be exact.  Works Progress Administration is the name of the band, and it is made up of a bunch of folky heavyweights…

WPA is:

  • Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket) – vocals, guitar
  • Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek, Fiction Family) – guitar, vocals
  • Luke Bulla (Jerry Douglas Band, Ricky Skaggs) – fiddle, vocals, guitar
  • Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek) – fiddle, vocals
  • Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) – piano, organ
  • Greg Leisz (Joni Mitchell, Wilco, Sheryl Crow, Beck) – pedal steel
  • Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Imposters, Randy Newman) – drums
  • Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello and the Imposters, Cracker) – bass

Their tourdates have also run the gauntlet that is my September ’09 musicalendar and made it’s way into the lovely WOW Hall in Eugene, OR, on Sunday, September 27th.  It’ll only be the “quartet” version of WPA, but I’m not complaining.  That’s gotta have at least Glen & Sean (Watkins).

PS- unrelated, Radiohead have a new song for download over at the W.A.S.T.E. Store.  It’s called “Harry Patch (In Memory Of)” and proceeds will go to the British Legion.  Go HERE to read more about it.

Seriously… new Radiohead, folks.
