Blaid & the Family Trade

Performing Drugstore Hucksters

Don't forget to catch these lovely folks at their very own release party for their very own first ever EP that's called Whiskey With Goliath, Friday January 25th, 2013! Where? At the Icehouse. Where is that? 2528 Nicollet Ave S, Minneapolis!

The Family Trade is a six-piece folk orchestra that features band members from Yes!Lets Collective bands Very Small Animal and the Dusty Porch Sisters. The EP's seven songs were recorded live to analog tape at McNally Smith's College of Music studios (where Laidlaw teaches songwriting), and the resulting album has a warmth and heart that is reminiscent of classic folk records like Neil Young's Harvest and The Band's Music from Big Pink.
