Sister Gertrude Morgan, Let's Make A Record: LP Release Party with King Britt & Friends

FINAL SGM 2017

About a decade ago, Preservation Hall got their hands on the only known recordings of famed local folk artist Sister Gertrude Morgan's voice and tambourine. From there, Ben Jaffe and Philadelphia DJ King Britt built castles in the air, re-imagining these tapes to include a backing band.

Tonight we celebrate the first ever vinyl release of this project, first issued only on CD and digital formats in 2005, with a one-night-only show featuring King Britt's Sister G band and members of Preservation Hall Jazz, plus more, performing the album live in Three Keys. 

Britt will be joined by album co-producer and guitarist Tim Motzer who has collaborated with British singer-songwriter David Sylvian and in the ongoing Secret Rhythms project comprising electronica/dub luminary Burnt Friedman and ex-Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit.
