One part Street Urchin, one part Wharf Rat, and one part Vamp, stirred with a twist of strings makes a cocktail that will knock you off your stool.      Ida Red blossomed out of the traditional folk music scene of 1990ís New York City and has taken old school harmony singing and acoustic arrangements through the spinner of modern influence, the byways of America, and wrung out a new kind of folk.


Erica Smith, Alison Kelley, and Daphne Glover, newly joined by Craig Edwards are Ida Red.
