Because Session Americana are having a rock star moment. This fall, the Cambridge-based collective of talents undertake their biggest tour since starting the band at Toad just over a decade ago. Promoting their latest gem, Great Shakes (out Thursday), has them traveling New England, the West Coast and Europe - back-to-back shows at Oberon on Sept. 29 and 30 serve as local release parties. But familiar voices lead the LP. Ry Cavanaugh writes of a lonely whiskey-drinking, weed-smoking cowboy on One Skinner, Dinty Child braids heartbreak and redemption together on One Good Rain, and Jim Fitting adds a few blues-inflected tales that sound straight out of the ’50s (1950s or 1850s).
