Songs from the Garden
Robin Macy sings from her heart and from the heartland on a collection of songs that blend sophisticated musicality, lyrics rooted in the black Kansas soil and brilliant accompaniment by an all-star cast. "Songs from the Garden," Robin's first solo effort, draws on all of the forces at her disposal: her strong, other-era voice, gifted songwriting, network of exceptional musician friends and inspiration from Bartlett Arboretum, the bountiful patch of nature she calls home.
Musicians from Nashville to Austin to Portland – Kentucky White, Darol Anger, Chris Searles, Stuart Duncan, Sara Hickman, Monica Taylor and others – stepped forward to help with this project. From the first track's salute to simplicity to the last song's testament to the healing power of digging in the earth, this collection is a tribute to the importance of finding your own roots and following your heart.
Original cover and booklet design by Jo and Craig Tomson perfectly capture Robin's spirit, and that of the music – making this one album that's as visually entrancing as it is musically engaging.
Proceeds exclusively benefit Bartlett Arboretum.
