An outgrowth of when Sweeney hooked up with members of the Silk Road Ensemble, this cross cultural mash up is serious but has none of the seriousness of too much world beat. But there's no disrespect in it's air either. Ya heard much Chinese Celtic lately? Equal parts ear opener and door opener, the armchair traveler has a treat here that hasn't been his way in some time. Well done. ” - Chris Spector

Scratching The Surface

Ed Sweeney

In cart Not available Out of stock

This is an eclectic group of songs and instrumentals. A mixture of humorous as well as serious, It was partially recorded at Ramblin' Conrad's in Norfolk Virginia during a springtime concert in 1986. Some songs are timeless and poignant as others like First Things First written by Dr. Alex Comfort (the author of the Joy of Sex who was an anti nuclear activist) may feel dated.
