Synopsis

Album Description
As an independent label, we've worked hard to develop a distinctive sound ? part-folk, part-classical, all-acoustic instrumental music. We feel our music is indeed unique, and we've never compromised in our determination to produce only the highest quality, most beautifully packaged recordings. We include detailed liner notes for those who are curious about the history and background of the music. Gourd has licensed music to Warner Bros. Music, Narada, Hearts of Space, Windham Hill, The Disney Channel, A&E and The History Channel. Selections from the Gourd recording The World Turned Upside Down were featured on the Ken Burns documentary Thomas Jefferson. Three Gourd recordings were featured on Ken Burns? latest project ( a documentary on Susan B. Anthony & Elizabeth Cady Stanton) on PBS.

CD Reviews

Great arrangements - excellent guitar and strings
05/06/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Like the Shakers, sometimes somber, sometimes "kick-up-the-heels" dancing, this album has a wide range of mood and tempo. If you like guitar and strings, as well as spatterings of dulcimer and other "Celtic" instruments, you'll like this collection. I found the contrast of the tracks refreshing, a reminder of the way life is. Unlike the Shakers, I hope these guys have many more "children". I'm going to try some of their other albums."
Truly a classroom favorite!

"I use this album in my classroom when I study Shakerism with my students. They love the soothing, melodic hymns of the Shakers, and even request it long after we have finished with the unit!"
One of my favorite albums

"I first bought this on cassette over ten years ago and was thrilled to find it on CD recently, since I no longer own a tape player. It is such a soothing, joyful album. The companion CDs are great, too, but this one remains one of my favorites."
