The first Emy Phelps/Darol Anger collaboration, available here.

Ten original songs by this amazing and beloved singer-songwriter... arranged, produced and recorded by Darol.

Many of the most virtuosic young musicians in New England are featured, as well as Darol himself, on a generous palette of acoustic instruments.

In combination, Anger and Phelps bring out each other's special ability to convey deep emotional resonance. The cast of youthful virtuoso musicians and accomplished veterans assembled here represent some of the cream of America's musical talent. Anger's deep connections within the acoustic music world have made possible some brilliant settings for Emy's songs.

The musicians include bassists Samson Grisman, Bridget Kearney, and Karl Doty.

Modern Cellist Extraordinaire Mike Block is a guest soloist.

Aoife O'Donovan contributes background vocals

Bruce Molsky and the phenomenal harpist Maeve Gilchrist step out in stellar roles.

Darol Anger contributes his usual thoughtful and surprising violin and string sounds.

Many more amazing musicians populate these tracks.
