Lancaster folk trio The Innocence Mission released their 11th album, Sun on the Square, this past spring. In it, three decades worth of experience culminate in a vast and enchanting work, and though it’s hard to believe the band could get anymore stripped down, that’s exactly what they did in a recent Folkadelphia session. Without orchestral accompaniment, there is nothing to distract from Karen Peris’ lilting vocals, which float above an intricate puzzle of Don Peris’ fingerpicked guitars, creating an otherworldly feeling. Check out the session below.
