Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds

Hi Yall, I am lovin the new recording. I can see and hear that you have pared down the band to 7. What happened?

Actually, Ryan is on trombone on almost every tune on the new record, so on the recording it's mostly still an 8 piece, as we had been for the past few years. Ryan majored in Political Science in college, and at the beginning of last year, he decided he wanted to go to law school to enter the field of political/social activism. He officially left the band about a year ago to begin preparing for that (and he's entering law school in the fall of this year). He's still very much a Dirty Bird for life and we love him and wish him the best! (And he still pops up onstage with us from time to time!)
