ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the 1980s and 1990s, Ken toured frequently in Ontario. He was sponsored first by the Canada Center For Inland Waters, a Great Lakes research institute. Later, his performances were underwritten by The Environmental Hazards Team (The "EH" Team) of Dunnville, Ontario... founded by Pat and Chuck Potter. Pat and Chuck underwrote the recording of "In The Birchwood" in 1989.

Sessions were conducted at Smart Studios in Madison, WI, and feature Doug Brown (guitar, banjo, fiddle), Jeff Eckels (double bass), Tony Castaneda (congas) and Maggie Delaney-Potthoff (vocal harmony).

This digital-download version of "In The Birchwood" is the first 'true' appearance of the album in digital format. Most of the tracks made up part of the compilation CD "Weave". Now, "In The Birchwood" is presented in it's complete and original format, digitally re-mastered.

A bonus track is included at the end of the program: "Mishi Sagie Gan" (the Ojibway words that settlers interpreted as 'Michigan'). The song was recorded by Ken, Doug Brown and Jeff Eckels for a special project commissioned by The Lake Michigan Federation. Sadly, the original tracking sessions are lost, as are any digital copies of the mix. This recording is taken from a cassette tape copy of the mix... but even with it's audio limitations, the song belongs proudly in this collection of Great Lakes-area songs.
