Whether you're preparing Thanksgiving dinner or traveling to get there we want to leave you with some music from the Boston-based roots band, Session Americana.

Their latest album is "Pack Up the Circus," — it's a kind of response to the ever-present question that so many musicians are tired of hearing, "What's your day job?"

Session Americana will be at Club Passim in Cambridge Dec. 12.
