about

15 tracks, 33 minutes of short stories in sound... textures of raw musical improvisation recorded at home, in the car, or walking in the woods. Vocals and guitar open the album with 'What You Want", and jawharp and vocals close it with 'Old New World'. All other tracks are intrumentals on four string banjo, five string fretless mountain banjo, lapharp, and other traditional intrumentation, with a digital push (reverb, etc).
