The Dog House Band plays a cover of the traditional folksong "St. James Infirmary." The track was actually recorded in the Doghouse, a residence on the Bennington College campus. Ben Hartlage, vocal and rhythm guitar; Sven Birkerts, acoustic guitar; David Gates, electric guitar; Lee Johnson, bass.
A group of writing instructors and students who over the years formed a ragtag band during late-night impromptu jam sessions at the Bennington Writing Seminars released their first CD earlier this year. Titled Let's Doghouse: A Tribute to Liam Rector, the compilation serves as a memorial to the founding director of the Writing Seminars, a poet, who passed away two years ago.
