  • This Land is Your Land - Cypress Street Band - (cover for PBS)

    This video was put together for the PBS 'This Land is Your Land Project' http://www.pbs.org/wnet/ame....... We decided to do an over the top video and threw in practically every instrument we could play, and just about every vocal range we're capable of covering. To add to the fun, we asked symphony violinist Ann Okagaito to join us as a special guest.

    Now after hundreds of hours of arranging, rehearsing, recording, and editing, this video is finally completed! We hope you enjoy our efforts! It marks a high point for us in both music and video production.




    Look for a vintage 1922 Maybelle banjo-ukulele. It belongs to Katherine MacDonald, who asked us to use it in a video. The instrument has a long history, originally purchased by her father, and then taken over by her. She played it in a bluegrass band for over 40 years before retiring.




    For those of you curious about how we made the video, I will be starting a blog about the whole process: http://cypressstreetband.wo.......

    As of May 13th, nothing is up yet but more and more stuff will be posted, now that I have some time.
