About the CD . . .
THE INFINITE DARK travels the lands of fairy tale with one of the genre’s masters. Author and poet Jane Yolen holds two Nebula Awards and was named the 2017 Grand Master of Science Fiction and Fantasy by the Science Fiction Writers of America. Called both ‘America’s Aesop for the twentieth century’ and her Hans Christian Andersen, Yolen celebrates the publication of her 370th book in 2018.
Jane collaborates here with acoustic trio 3 Ravens (Lui Collins, Max Cohen & Donna Hébert). They bring her otherworldly poetry to life in a collection of readings, songs, and instrumentals. A suite about shapeshifting Selkies and mermaids adds the voice of Molly Hebert-Wilson and the pennywhistle of Sarah Bauhan. Jane’s verses take the listener to Grimm-er lands as well, revisiting Hansel and Gretel and the forest of the Wolf, reminding us that those archetypes still people our inner and outer landscapes.
Lui, Max, Donna and Molly sing lead and harmony, with Max’s guitar underpinning Jane’s spoken-word tracks throughout. Donna’s haunting fiddle, Lui’s ukulele, piano and banjo all add musical texture, while their voices take the listener deep into the story . . .
“Somewhere between my lips, your ear, is the story you should hear” Yolen/Hébert “Story”
