Cherry Tree Carol and The Ballad of Shirley Collins

Our arrangement of 'Cherry Tree Carol' is part of a Shirley Collins 'Inspired' compilation to help raise funds thru Kickstarter, for the documentary 'The Ballad of Shirley Collins'. We first learned of the song from Shirley's album 'Sweet England' recorded in 1959. Cherry Tree Carol is one of the oldest known Folk Songs…the earliest form of the song is said to have been sung at the Feast of Corpus Christi in the early 15th century.

Robbie Basho Tribute and Film Benefit Concert with Arborea, Daniel Bachman, Ryley Walker August 23rd, Philadelphia

We've organized a very special concert with Arborea, Daniel Bachman, and Ryley Walker for Saturday, August 23rd in Philadelphia @ Johnny Brenda's:

Details Johnny Brenda's and Alabaster Museum present a special concert in tribute to the late guitarist Robbie Basho. The event is also a benefit to raise funds to complete the first everdocumentary film about Basho - titled Voice Of The Eagle: The Enigma Of Robbie Basho - currently in the works by London-based filmmaker Liam Barker. The lineup includes performances by Virginia based guitarist Daniel Bachman, Maine based folk duo Arborea, and Chicago based guitarist/singer-songwriter Ryley Walker. ….performers whose work has been inspired by Robbie Basho's music. A preview of the film in production will be featured during the evening, and a drawing to win a vinyl copy of the Robbie Basho tribute record 'We Are All One, In The Sun'...produced by Arborea for Important Records in 2010. The album made Acoustic Guitar Magazine's Best Albums of 2010, 'Editors Top Pick' Guitar Player Magazine, Pitchfork 7.9, etc. The 180 gram vinyl edition of the Basho tribute was released on the UK label alt.vinyl in a limited 300 copy edition and is now Sold Out.

About Robbie Basho Robbie Basho (1940 - 1986) was a Berkeley-based composer, guitarist, and vocalist and one of the foremost proponents of steel string acoustic guitar as a solo concert instrument. Along with John Fahey and Leo Kottke, Basho was part of the triumvirate of pioneering guitarists on the Berkeley-based Takoma label in the 1960s. Basho went on to record for Windham Hill, and was an important influence on the label’s founder, guitarist William Ackerman. His innovative guitar compositions incorporated American folk, European, and Eastern influences, and he is credited for developing the improvisational “American raga” style.

About the Film Voice of the Eagle: The Enigma of Robbie Basho is a journey into the heart of an artist's lifelong struggle - designed to illuminate and satiate existing fans while serving as a perfect starting point for the uninitiated. Produced by London based director Liam Barker, Voice of the Eagle: The Enigma of Robbie Basho features interviews with Basho's former students, contemporaries and few close friends; interspersed with abstract employment of archive footage and photography of the natural phenomena and localities that informed Basho's work. Basho claimed to paint America with music; the film will attempt to transfigure Robbie Basho with sound and images.
