It's: "Fair Time!"
What a fantastic journey this has been, getting this collection of songs on record and in hand.
My new album, "Fair Time!" has arrived, and we are now in the middle of folding and packaging and generally hand knitting the little packets of goodness! It was my friend Nick's idea to have the particular packaging that we have, and I've been getting good feedback on it. I would like to know your thoughts on it too.
As some of you may know, I've been back and forth to friend and guitar player Billy Derby's home studio in New Hampshire all winter, putting a little of this and a little of that into the mix. Sam Zucchini joined us on drums, and Dave Anderson played some bass. Billy, as you will see and hear, played some bass as well, and all the guitar playing, and he also put on some pedal steel. We had fun laying on percussion. The songs were all penned by yours truly, with a number of them being composed in collaboration with Billy or some of the other wonderful musicians that I have had the good fortune to play with through the years.
One can order the CD through my website, katetaylor.com. I will be having the capability to download the songs from my website at some point in the near future, but I really would like you to see this art work and have it in your hands when you listen sometimes, as the lyrics are all there, and there are pictures that pertain to a number of the tunes on the disc.
It is a joyous moment, a great moment for us. It's been a beautiful road to get to this point. The work has been done, the crops are in and now, my sweet friends, it's "Fair Time!"
And we also have the "Kate Taylor:Tunes From the Tipi and Other Songs From Home" DVD release coming up in August. Stay tuned for that. Liz Witham, the fearless leader of Docutunes.tv, is weaving her magic story-telling spell with this piece. I am honored to be the subject of one of her works. No one tells the stories better than she and Ken do.
If you have any questions for me regarding the CD, the DVD or anything else for that matter, you can find me right here at Docutunes.tv.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Much love always,
