Tim O'Brien - Chicken or Egg CD

The thirteenth solo album from Grammy-winner Tim O'Brien mixes originals, collaborations, and a handful of outside compositions. The earthy wisdom of Chicken & Egg's songs are delivered in appropriately spontaneous fashion, largely recorded live in the studio with a core group of collaborators. O'Brien says, "It was time to make a more acoustic record - more along the lines of a bluegrass thing, with an ensemble and not a lot of production: something pretty down-home, featuring a more consistent band." Most recently, O'Brien has been performing before capacity crowds in the band of Mark Knopfler, who described him as "a master of American folk music, Irish music, Scottish music - it doesn't matter; a fine songwriter and one of my favorite singers."
