"3 String Stephen Plays Cigar Box Guitar" album arrives in Canada! read review by Francois Couture, listen to "Time and Money"

STEPHEN COHEN / 3 String Stephen Plays Cigar Box Guitar (3 handed productions)
A solo album by Stephen Cohen (of the bands The Tree People and Walking Willows), here playing... a three-string cigar-box guitar. And singing with in childlike voice. Eleven pieces, some of them instrumentals, and new versions of Walking Willows’ “Ride the Train” and The Tree People’s “The Change in Kate.” Gorgeous, simple, bluesy: Cohen draws the most out of his instrument and adds a handful of songs to his repertoire, a repertoire full of magical simplicity. Songs out of time. My only complaint is one I have made about all his albums: it’s too short! [Below: “Time and Money.”]
