Fans of The Black Crowes will be very happy with the exciting new band The Magpie Salute. This brand-new musical adventure began during a studio session in Woodstock, New York, where guitarist Rich Robinson was working with his Crowes band mate Sven Pipien. For fun, Robinson invited other Crowes-members Marc Ford and Eddie Harsch. During that session, the fire turned out to be ever-present. The love of rock & roll, R&B, country, and spirtuals connected the musical friends and right away the decision was made to organise a series of shows with the group, and also Robinson’s own band members and vocalists. Fans were so enthusiastic that the four New York shows were sold out within minutes. Unfortunately, Eddie Harsch passed away in November of 2016. His place is filled by Matt Scolum.
