Three For Silver

Three For Silver is a tatterdemalion ensemble of rotating musicians led by Lucas Warford, “the acid baby of Tom Waits and Les Claypool,” as NW legend Baby Gramps called him.

It’s an aggressively original band that is impervious to easy description.

PR people often use phrases like Mythic Americana, Doomfolk, or Apocalypso.

Some of those are pretty good, but they still just feel like the desperate necessities of someone forced to fill out a  form labelled “genre”.

Three For Silver features one-of-a-kind instruments you’ve never seen playing styles mixed in ways you’ve never heard. The band has hit the road since 2013, and their monomaniacal devotion has already led them all over the USA and the world, from Accordion Festivals in Vienna to Modern Music Expos in Russia, and even partnering with the US State Department for ongoing cultural exchange tours to countries thirsty for truly original American music.

The main hook stating:  ‘it takes a lot of goodbyes to get to forever.
