Michael Hurley, once of the Holy Modal Rounders and New York's original Greenwich Village pre-punk folk scene, knows what works. Whether it's avoiding press, collaborating with revivalist artists and labels like Cass McCombs and Mississippi Records, or playing only the most down-home, community-friendly venues like Pickathon and the LaurelThirst, Hurley's comfort zone is well defined. And after 71 years, it ought to be. He's got it down. Plus, there's something about Hurley's sweet, warm, plucky, austere, reminiscing tunes that makes extra sense during the holidays. His welcome—of warts and all—is the kind we can only hope for from our own friends and family. Should you find yours lacking, well, Hurley provides a glowing example—in both grace and song.
