There’s room for you at the hero table,” Raissa says. “On ‘GO FAST BABY,’ I’m talking directly to the people who were shitty to me and held me back from reaching my potential.

In lieu of the preservation of traditional material in any strict sense, however, Two Bird Stone likes to function as a lens through which an audience gets a fresh look at the culture of traditional tune sharing and the instruments upon which we would generally hear them played.
