Last night, less than one week later, Krasno was back in action for a totally different kind of performance at New York’s intimate Rockwood Music Hall.Billed as Eric Krasno & Friends Unplugged, the evening’s band included a pair of his Eric Krasno Band cohorts, guitarist Danny Mayer and vocalist Mary Corso, as well as keyboardist Eric Finland, who played with Krasno’s E3 Organ Trio earlier this year. Percussionist Ben Marino, one of Finland’s frequent collaborators, rounded out the lineup. As Krasno tells Live For Live Music, Marino came highly recommended by Finland. “Ben was so good. I met him 3 hours before the show… He’s playing the Wormtown Festival with us coming up.”The band worked through a selection of songs from 2014’s Blood From A Stone in addition to acoustic readings of a pair of covers that also appeared during last week’s LOCKN’ JGB celebration with Lettuce: Smokey Robinson and the Miracles classic “I Second That Emotion” and Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter favorite “They Love Each Other”. In addition to making mention of the LOCKN’ set, Krasno spoke about an experience visiting Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi‘s house, reminiscing about how he landed on the idea for Tedeschi Trucks Band‘s “Calling Out To You” on one of Derek’s open-tuned guitars before delivering a tender rendition of the tune.The show also included the debut of a new original song, a stoically heart-wrenching lament called “Carry My Name”, which Krasno wrote as part of a new concept album he currently has in the works. You can watch a full video of the live debut of “Carry My Name” below:Eric Krasno & Friends Unplugged – “Carry My Name” (Debut)[Video: Andrew O’Brien]This show marked Krasno’s second Rockwood show in as many weeks. On August 21st, Krasno and Scott Metzger (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, WOLF!) teamed up for a duo show at the roughly 60-capacity Stage 3, the smallest of Rockwood’s three performance spaces.
