The songs on “Your Name in Secret I would Write” we learned from Margaret. She died in 2006 in the northwest room of her farmhouse. In 2010 we received a grant from the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, and set up our laptop and microphones in that same room and began making this album of a few of the songs she collected and loved.
This record is a way to inhabit the landscape where we live—through the porous poetry of this place—and a way to bring back the dead. My grandmother, yes, but the others as well: the generations who sang these songs around their fires, the women poets who walked these hills, the now-gone folks my grandmother recorded singing seventy-some years ago. This album is for Margaret, and for Avah too.
YOUR NAME IN SECRET I WOULD WRITE will be released on Tuesday, September 20th. Please come back to read and find out more.
