String of Peals: Rhiannon Giddens and Laurelyn Dossett

1 Comments 08 Dec, 2011

Returning from Maine we had the honor of helping Laurelyn with her Gathering Kickstarter campaign, editing material shot by Abigail Seymour during the recording process of the album.  Following the edit we were invited to Laurelyn’s house to record a very informal version of String of Pearls, a lovely track on a beautiful album.  Many thanks to Laurelyn, Rhiannon, and Nonesuch Records for the opportunity.


The album is available for purchase here.


Praise for The Gathering:

“It’s a fresh approach to wintry music, with mountain-music instrumentation and crystalline harmonies.”
4 1/2 stars
Andrew Dansby and Joey Guerra, San Antonio Express News

“Collections of Appalachian holiday tunes have come along before, but one of the finest is now ‘The Gathering,’ ”
4 1/2 stars

  1. Alway’s nice consuming whatever you have cooked up in the kitchen after taking in the aromatic smells.The spice rack seem’s to be endless and helps offer a balanced and very unique flavor to the Entree being served when seasoned correctly.While enjoying my meal I noticed a lovely string of pearls hanging from the neck of my server which had a wonderful brilliant shine………………
