A long walk at Walden Pond. A smokehouse from the Underground Railroad. A happy farm. Hard urban streets contrasting softly winding rural backroads. Solitude in an empty colonial home...These are some of the images & settings in "Pieces of New England". A project that reflects on local architecture, history, landscape and current events, it's a personal "record" of life during the Great Recession in rough but significant times.
Arrangements with lyrics & text will be included as part of an educational video series. Coming soon.
