“A joyful intermingling of high art and folk music…includes the most beautiful recording of the Shaker tune ‘I Will Bow and Be Simple’ available on disc.” The Detroit News
Revels visits early America in this classic, Parents Choice Award-winning recording featuring Kentucky folk legend Jean Ritchie and beloved public radio personality Robert J. Lurtsema. Haunting, austerely gorgeous, and front-porch friendly, this recording is as American as a Shaker chair, as universal and timeless as, well, the Revels itself.
