Folk Songs and Renovations

Some time in the next few months my first professionally produced CD, ‘Folk Songs and Renovations’, will be released.

The CD has been recorded, mixed and mastered by Stew Kirkwood at Sound Extractor here in Edmonton, and I would highly recommend Stew for any Edmonton musicians looking for a good place to record.

The sound is very basic: on most of the eleven tracks there is just one voice and one instrument – either guitar or cittern. There is one a capella track, and three tracks have additional mandolin and voice parts by my good friend Alex Boudreau.

Here’s the track list (this is not the final order):

Master Kilby (Trad. arr. T. Chesterton)
William Glenn (Words: Trad./T. Chesterton, Tune: T. Chesterton)
What a Day It Will Be (T. Chesterton)
Lord Franklin (Trad. arr. T. Chesterton)
As I Roved Out (Trad. arr. T. Chesterton)
Cold Blow And The Rainy Night (Words: Trad., Tune: T. Chesterton)
I Know You Will Be There (T. Chesterton)
Old (T. Chesterton)
Jonah (T. Chesterton)
Fire of Love (T. Chesterton)
The Ballad of Jake and Rachel (T. Chesterton)

Over the next few days I will be posting more information, including song lyrics and background to some of the songs. Meanwhile, there are rough mixes of two of the songs, ‘William Glenn’ and ‘Old’, available for listening over at my Reverbnation site. Hope you enjoy them!
