For their 10th anniversary season, Bawn in the Mash decided to go big – heading to Grand Victor Sound Studios (formerly RCA Studio A) to record their 5th studio release, A Grand Ole Time Indeed. They invited local photographer Laura Partain along to document the action, and we have the exclusive photo diary here.
” I met Laura Partain at the Newport Folk Festival this summer,” says Thomas Oliverio of Bawn in the Mash, “where she was shooting tin type photos with Giles Clements crew. Since we both were living here in town, I was hoping to find an opportunity to collaborate, as her film skills are exceptional. Having a photographer in the studio while trying to record an album in one day could have been distracting, but Laura’s presence was stealth. She blended in right away, while still bringing positive artistic vibes to the session. “
