Birch Book - III - A Hand Full Of Days LP

This is the third part in the Birch Book series! "A Hand Full of Days" represents the culmination of a bizarre journey through "That High Lonesome Path". A collection of songs and incongruant meditations find family with stark passage and psychedelic interlude. A dreamy masterpiece of perfect songwriting! Comes in a heavy fold-out cover and includes 15 songs (61 min).

As poet, pilgrim, progenitor of wyrd-folk and maestro of In Gowan Ring, Jon Michael Beirth (otherwise B'ee) has developed a homespun sonic tapestry with peculiar richness of vision; recording over ten full length albums and performing throughout North America & Europe in veritable itinerant fashion amidst a dozen years against the grain. As well as composing the original material for Birch Book & In Gowan Ring, Bee collects renditions of traditional songs and builds many of the acoustic instruments featured in performances and recordings such as the recent lyre-guitar & leaf cittern. Though largely self-taught, he has didactically studied the music of the Trouvères and Troubadours, the counterpoint of the High Renaissance, and modern orchestration.
