TrpCrKng (MD) - "What strange rains came bringing gifts of breath and wind to this place? They will fall again. The outpouring will reveal mysteries dreamed in secret. Kohen often dreams dreams, among other things. Hear now his early dreams and visions in song"...a member of the QODESH collective.

Andy McLeod (VA) is a musician and visual artist living in Fredericksburg Va. Inspired by the work of Jack Rose and Pelt, Fahey and Delta Blues, he taught himself how to play finger style guitar in open tuning and experimented with mixing it with drones and psychedelic elements and in the process he got into clawhammer banjo so that this became a big part in his current work as well.
