American Hornpipe (Threshold Music 2012)
Heroes and ne’er do-wells, ghostly stories, and cautionary tales are played upon a backdrop of earthy grooves and elegant melodies. The title itself summons up the essence of this collection: American Hornpipe, a simple English dance tune, brought across the oceans like so many other articles of folklore, now fleshed out upon the rich tapestry of contemporary American culture.
Lending their edge, sophistication and groove to this collection of tunes is Asheville-area world music trio, Free Planet Radio (River Guerguerian – percussion, Eliot Wadopian – bass, Chris Rosser – strings and keyboards).
