Sunday Breakfast - Spuyten Duyvil - 4/13/14

by John Platt

Spuyten Duyvil is a seven-piece band born in the Hudson Valley. They take their name from the creek that divides Manhattan and the Bronx, and their music from the American roots tradition — but with a lot of original songwriting and high-energy playing. Since breaking out as emerging artists at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, they've been building a fan base in Brooklyn and far beyond. It was a treat to welcome this fun-loving group back to Studio A.

Leave your suggestions in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.
