Dark River

by Various Artists

  • Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier
  • The Yellow Rose of Texas

The Dark River project is a collection of classic public-domain material from the Civil War era interpreted by some of Austin’s finest singer/songwriters. It begins with a young man on his way to the battle of Shiloh, through the years of blood and glory and concludes on the streets of Laredo. Produced by Chuck Pinnell and featuring great artists like Slaid Cleaves, Jon Dee Graham, Jeff Plankenhorn, Drew Nelson, Eliza Gilkyson, and many more, Dark River’s stunning performances and arrangements present a vibrant narrative about America’s most convulsive decade.

Dark River will be released by Blue Corn Music September 13th, 2011, and will be available through Amazon, iTunes, and other major music retailers.
