Brooding Tradition

Elliott Brood brings its energetic brand of ‘death country’ and impromptu kitchen parties to Harvest this week. By Kyle Mullin for New Brunswick’s Telegraph Journal, Sept. 13 2010

When he sits down to a meal, Mark Sasso savours not the flavour but the clattering cutlery noise. So much so, that when his band Elliott Brood plays a gig, the members hand out pots and pans to fans, turning the audience into a rattling kitchen party orchestra.

“It’s like having your drunken cousins over to smash along while you play,” guitarist and front man Sasso said of his band’s tradition, which Fredericton Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival audiences will be able to partake in Thursday.

“I love it because it’s kind of part of the sing-along tradition passed down through every culture where you try to involve everyone.”
