Workman Song is a solo project fronted by Sean McMahon, a 25-year-old from Western Massachusetts currently living in New York. A sort of mystic folk storyteller, McMahon’s dramatic, stirring music wouldn’t sound entirely out of place in a church — which is exactly where we took it. For this special episode of BTR Hear & There, we joined Workman Song, including members of Streets Of Laredo (who McMahon also plays with regularly) as well as Totara Jack on guitar and Sean’s brother, Griffin McMahon, on the house organ, at Christ Church in New York City.
Featured song: “Patient Like A Lamb”
Ion Zelig Vol. III, the latest release from Workman Song, is now available.
