Album Notes
Never content to merely be the only bass clarinet and viola duo in the world, Darkwood Consort has cultivated a repertoire of exotic instrumental music that blends folk, medieval and classical music delivered with wit. Darkwood has taken its brand of “stand-up chamber music” from Idaho to Denmark, the 33rd International Viola Congress in Iceland, the first World Bass Clarinet Conference in Holland to the Katrina-ravaged gulf coast in Mississippi.

The new CD demonstrates Darkwood's genuine taste for the eclectic with Manos Hadjidakis' exotic Amidst the Ruins of Hadrian's Gate, their Danish heritage with Jeg gik mig ud en sommerdag, their love of the Middle Ages with Dufay's Adieu ces bons vins de Lannoys, their commitment to social justice with Buffy Sainte-Marie's Seeds of Brotherhood, and a dose of humor with Roger Miller's King of the Road, which Miller wrote in Darkwood's base of operations, Boise, Idaho.
