I found this on Charles de Lint’s tumblr site:
I don’t recommend a lot of Kickstarter projects — mostly because I could fill up way too much space with all the worthy ones that are out there and I don’t want to inundate you. But this one from Zahatar is a little different.
The band has taken the tunes printed in the back of my book The Little Country and expanded the simple melody lines to full string band arrangements. What little I’ve heard sounds fantastic. So I’ll be honest here, and a little self-serving. I really hope this project succeeds because I’d love to hear a full album.
We’ve reviewed The Little Country and have a recording of the Tinker’s Own band performing ‘The Tinker’s Black Kettle’, a jig composed by Charles de Lint from the novel. You can full information on this Kickstarter here.
