In Their Words: “‘Fourth Decade’ was written by Noah to celebrate a friend’s milestone birthday. We workshopped this tune for a while before finally settling on the instrumentation: fiddle with double clawhammer banjos! And before you ask, these are cooperative banjos, not the violently competitive variety. The three of us have played a lot of dance music over the years — contra, square, cajun, swing, etc. — and we tried to capture that energy and connection on this track.” — Andrew VanNorstrand, The Faux Paws
