ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE SOUTH WIND album has been a few years in the making!

The album project was produced in tandem with Jed Marum’s work on the sound track for a Lone Chimney film called, THE ROAD TO VALHALLA. The two projects were worked on parallel tracks and both topically cover the era around the American Civil War. Both projects draw from history and take a “looking back view,” as might be told by the men and women who lived through the period. Several tracks from this album are used in the movie's sound track. The film stars Buck Taylor (from Gunsmoke, Tombstone and dozens of other films) and Michael Martin Murphey (Wildfire, The Cowboy Way and many many other hits).

The album's musical style varies from Celtic roots to American folk and folk/blues. On it you’ll hear resophonic, standard and DADGAD guitars, banjo and banjola, whistles, fiddles, harmonica and highland pipes. You’ll hear mostly original with some traditional songs or tunes and you’ll hear choral, Folk/Gospel singing. The album offers a wide variety of musical content. The music and performances are beautiful. This is an album to be played over and over, anytime, anywhere.

THE SOUTH WIND has an overall strong South Positive message, with its tales springing from real historical events or thoughts of individuals, as remembered from diaries, memoirs and histories.

Th e South Wind by Jed Marum: A Short Review
I've long been a fan of Jed Marum's music and songwriting. His technique is flawless and versatile, whether flatpicking or finger picking on guitar, banjo, and banjola. He is a road warrior--traversing the nation with his songs and stories for audiences of all ages.
Of all Marum's CDs, I feel that he has produced his masterpiece with The South Wind (Though Cross Over the River is a close second). This CD, released on March 17, 2013, captures the spirit of the South and succinctly communicates what it means and what it feels like to be a Southerner.
Marum's songs tell stories that are the fruit of his constant reading and research into the War Between the States. These songs are historically accurate and the lyrics are vivid--often sharp enough to cut the heart. The songs take us into Arkansas, Virginia, Missouri, and force us to look at the War through the eyes of those who lived it, who were brutalized by it, and who died because of it. Jed's been working on this CD for a few years. It has a South Positive message.
Performing with Marum in various tracts are Linda Relph, fiddle; David Lovrien, whistles; Lary Leghorn Fowler, highland pipes, and the Student Choir from Northfield School of Wichita, Kansas.
