Runaway Dream: Post African Music - DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
This collection of musical endeavors includes Old Time, Hokum, Minstrel, Shanties, Fife-&-Drum, and Blues from the U.S.; plus South African Freedom songs, Nigerian Highlife rearranged for string band; and calls for spiritual contemplation from both sides of the Atlantic. We even have a couple of originals.
We're blessed to have Dom Flemons, Mike Seeger, and Senbi Wilson as musical guests.
"This CD reflects some of what I've experienced since recording Ancestral Whirlwind in 1998--just before heading to Ireland: my girls growing up; my string band research; the Black Banjo Gathering; Sankofa Strings and the Carolina Chocolate Drops; my gigs all over the country and beyond; my growth as a storyteller--all that and more played their part in the creation of this portfolio of songs. We're so glad you stopped by! -- SGW, 2010"
