“Why I love America: there are still folks out there making simple, loving music in the treasured old styles from plainer times. Among them I find Kare Strong, whose ear for timeless melody is flawless. She has produced (with the considerable help of the wonderful Josh Goforth) this delicious album of songs for the family. It’s like making a new best friend.”

About Beneath the Cherry Tree

Fourteen imaginative original songs for the whole family. They are lyrical, poetic and have a Celtic-Appalachian folk feel. You’ll be transported to lands where trees, flowers, animals and faeries talk, and the unexpected and magical is the most real thing of all.  The songs tell stories of sweet friendships, acts of kindness, the wonders of nature, and everywhere you turn, you’ll find love.

All songs are written and sung by Kare Strong. Produced and so much more by Josh Goforth. CD cover and back art are oil paintings by Kare Strong.
