This album is a collection of our “Busking Songs”

Most of them are old traditional songs that we’ve created our own versions of, mashed up, and spit out. They've been passed around by different musicians and bands, through time and space, and these are our interpretations of them These are the songs we often play out on the street, around the fire, or anywhere else we congregate.

The 4th River Music Collective was born out of buskers, street artists, and radicals of Pittsburgh PA.

Featured on this album are:

The Hills and the Rivers:

Nomad Mountain Outlaws:

Cousin Boneless:
