The Jayhawks co-founder Mark Olson will preview songs from his new album Many Colored Kite. Olson and his girlfriend, musician/vocalist Ingunn Ringvold, will test out songs from the album with an intimate show at New York’s Rockwood Music Hall this evening, June 15. They’ll be joined by Jolie Holland, who is featured on the album’s soaring opening track “Little Bird of Freedom.”

Produced and engineered by Beau Raymond (Devendra Banhart, Little Joy, Mark Olson and Gary Louris), the album also features guitarist Neal Casal (Ryan Adams ) and renowned drummer Danny Frankel (Laurie Anderson, Bebel Gilberto, Fiona Apple, Madeleine Peyroux). Vashti Bunyan also adds vocals to the love song, “No Time to Live Without Her.”
