Focusing on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, this collaborative brings together some of North America’s most distinctive and creative roots musicians to revive, recycle and re-imagine traditional music. The repertoire includes Bahamian sea chanties, 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, fishermen, prisoners and homemakers. Collaborators include Grammy-winning songwriter Tim O’Brien, Bruce Molsky, Margaret Glaspy, Moira Smiley, Eli West, Brittany Haas, Julian Lage, Greg Garrison, and more.
