      Contemporary singer-songwriter and Cabinet of Wonders impresario Stace pays tribute to the legendary songwriter John Wesley Harding.

      Throughout the '90s and '00s, which included his tenures at Sire, Rhino and Hollywood records, John Wesley Harding regularly toured in a duo format with noted mandolin, accordion and keyboard player, Robert Lloyd. This was at the very dawn of Unplugged, before even house concerts. Once described as The Metallica of McCabes, the duo's performances were acknowledged to be the high watermark of contemporary live performance (in venues that held about one hundred people).

      Wesley Stace (Yep Roc) has coaxed Lloyd out of retirement to pay tribute to the legendary songbook of John Wesley Harding. All Harding's favourites will be represented and painstakingly recreated, from Modern Rock staple The Person You Are to 120 Minutes Video of the Week The Devil In Me; via Kill The Messenger and The Truth, memorably performed on the Tonight Show, to Scared of Guns, recently amended and released on Appleseed Records' anniversary collection.

      Since Stace's critically lauded debut "Self-Titled" in 2013, he has played many of Harding's songs live, but here he's happy to let his own songwriting take a backseat to the master's: "I feel an extraordinary kinship with these songs. It's as if I wrote them." Harding himself has endorsed this tribute: "I am deeply honored, and glad to be as far away as possible."

      Cellist Janet Schiff and Percussionist Victor DeLorenzo (founding drummer of ​Violent Femmes) create the new and dynamic sound that is Nineteen Thirteen.

      Schiff plays a cello that was made in Romania in the year of 1913 while DeLorenzo plays a set of drums made in modern day America. Together their music suggests mystery, romance and future thought​.​

      Powered by cello layers and beat brush percussion, this award winning duo defies expectations and rewards listeners with their unique expression of music.
