Focusing on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, this "collaboratory" brings together some of North America's most distinctive and creative roots musicians to revive, recycle, and reimagine traditional music. The repertoire includes Bahamian sea shanties, African-American a cappella singing from the Georgia Sea Islands, ancient Appalachian ballads, fiddle tunes, and work songs collected from both well-known musicians and everyday folk: sea captains, cowhands, fisherman, prisoners, and homemakers.

"A groundbreaking piece of work." - SONGLINES

"A transatlantic session with blood, guts and grit." - The Herald

"A truly inventive spin on some very old tunes." - GEORGIA STRAIGHT

"They’ve put a fresh contemporary sound on musical treasures found in Lomax's deep and rich archives." - NPR

"An album of beautiful, intriguing, thoughtful music coming from a collaboration of outstanding musicians who apply their talents together. It's an album with a beginning, a middle, and an end... asking us, as listeners, to immerse ourselves in the idea of it all. It rewards that attention as much as it captures it, leading us to the music, rather than pushing us to it." - SING OUT

"An essential album." - FOLK ROOTS more >>>
