Universal Favorite Pre-Order, New York and Boston this Weekend, Nashville Added

Howdy Folks!

Noam, here, with some news that will surely change your life.

My new album, Universal Favorite, is now available for pre-order, and not a moment too soon. Solo banjo album futures are the perfect safe-haven for your hard earned money in these turbulent and uncertain times.

For those you of feeling bullish, you can pre-order the album as a bundle with a new Matthew Diffee designed Universal Favorite t-shirt, which perfectly captures the essence of my solo shows.


All pre-orders come with immediate downloads of my new tune “Waveland” and my take on Josh Ritter’s “Folk Bloodbath.” I had the honor of getting to play "Waveland" on stage at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville this last Saturday, as part of A Prairie Home Companion, you can watch video of that here.

The official album release tour begins on March 2nd. If you just can’t wait until then, you’ll have to find a way to Hudson, NY this Friday or Cambridge, MA on Saturday. I’ll be at the beautiful Sanders Theatre, where I’m pretty sure Winston Churchill once also performed a solo banjo show. I’m incredibly lucky to have the brilliant Anaïs Mitchell kicking things off in Cambridge.

New shows have been added in March and April since my last missive, so be sure to the review all the dates on the tour page to avoid living a life filled with regret.

Hope to see you soon.
