In a few recording sessions scattered over 2017 & 2018, musicians and writers from all across Kentucky gathered on the slopes of Pine Mountain in Harlan County in a near-century-old chapel to make an album to benefit Kentucky Natural Lands Trust and Pine Mountain Settlement School. All of these recordings are never-before-heard, and almost all of the songs & poems being presented here are previously unreleased. Some of the 44 artists involved are...
Mary Ann Taylor-Hall
Bobbie Ann Mason
The Other Years
Rebecca Gayle Howell
The fundraiser / pre-order is happening right now:
I hope you'll order a copy of the Double-LP (in a triple-gatefold jacket!) or one of the autographed posters or prints. Really, I just hope you'll hear this record and that maybe it will inspire you to visit Pine Mountain, or to get involved with the amazing work that KNLT and the Settlement School are doing. Thank you for tuning in!
PS, I also have a song on the album. It's a new one called, "Never Look Away"
PPS, This is the first email update I've sent out in a long, long while. I'm going to be slightly better about that going forward. You *might* even hear from me more than once a year...
