We spent the weekend in Brooklyn working on An Army Without Music: CIvil War Stories from Hallowed Ground at Saltlands Studio with producer Gary Maurer (Hem).
The tracks sound beautiful. Gary has added mandolin (a 1917 Gibson we both drooled over). There's now banjo by Jason Mercer and fiddle from James Abrams of The Abrams Brothers. James' fiddle on Mollie Glass made us cry. Texas legend Bob Hoffnar will be adding pedal steel soon.
Looks like the album will have eight tracks: Mollie Glass, Rose of Sharon, Chantilly Grace, Lanterns at Horseshoe Ridge, Grancer Harrison, Goodnight House, Glorieta and Salem Church.
We hope for a summer release. Stay tuned!
