Darwin Song Project Concert
Shrewsbury, March 19th 2009
Mother of Mysteries
written by Mark Erelli & Karine Polwart
performed by Mark Erelli & Karine Polwart
In March 2009 eight folk singer/songwriters gathered together for a week long songwriting residential in rural Shropshire to create songs that had a relevance and resonance with Charles Darwin.
The eight artists were Chris Wood, Karine Polwart, Stu Hanna, Rachael McShane, Krista Detor, Emily Smith, Mark Erelli and Jez Lowe.
The whole concert was recorded for an upcoming CD release (July 2009), and the 8 musicians will reconvene at the Shrewsbury Folk Festival in August, to once again perform the 19 songs that were written during the week.
