About Beneath the Cherry Tree
This album features 14 highly imaginative original songs, in the folk tradition with an Irish-Appalachian flavor, – poetic, lyrical and loving. “While its overarching theme is nature, its implicit one is connection: to the child within us (no matter our age), to our own vibrant longings and imaginings, and to all creatures, great and small.”
The songs are written and sung by Kare Strong. Josh Goforth produced the album, made all the arrangements, played most of the many acoustic instruments and sang harmony vocals. CD jacket oil paintings by Kare Strong.
