Projects – Uncommon Folk

Uncommon Folk reimagines the songs that made America. Tim Sommer, with the help of engineer/arranger Stuart Chatwood, is nearly done recording an album which honors the tradition of American folk and protest song by creating widescreen electric interpretations of some of America’s best loved folk and protest songs. The music is dramatic, spatial, punk, and ethereal; high impact cinematic music that references the electric dreams and the dreamy electric music of the last 50 years. Artists who have assisted in this project to date include Glen Campbell, Robin Zander, Blind Boys of Alabama, Mavis Staples, Jakob Dylan, Michael Brook, Ari Hest, Dayna Kurtz, Christopher Tignor, Kristy Thirsk. Release date Fall 2010
