Eric Bibb: September Workshop, New CD
Eric Bibb has recorded a new CD, whose release in September will coincide with his workshop at The Haven, Spirit in the Song – and the CD is called The Haven. You can hear excerpts from three tracks from the album here (Wayfaring Stranger, Victory Voices, and Dream Baker).
Here's some of what Eric writes in the liner notes to the new CD:
"The feeling that accompanies the birth of an inspired song is uniquely exhilarating – and the journey that takes you there is mysterious and magical. I wish to share my experience of this journey. Together with my partner, Sari, we will soon be leading a workshop called Spirit in the Song. It will embark on its maiden voyage at The Haven, a holistic retreat located on Gabriola Island, BC, Canada, in September 2011.
"This recording, featuring both older and newer original songs, was one of the ideas that grew from the workshop project. My intention was to present the songs as they first came into being – with just voice and guitar."
The CD was beautifully recorded in the Phoenix Auditorium by award-winning sound engineer Graemme Brown – who you may have met as an assistant in Haven programs such as Come Alive and Shadow Play!
