We Are All One, In the Sun - Robbie "Basho" Robinson Tribute
Meg Baird, Glenn Jones, Arborea, Micah Blue Smaldone
We are all one, In the Sun:

"American Primitive guitarist Robbie "Basho" Robinson, one of the original pillars of John Fahey's legendary Takoma label, has a small but uncommonly devoted following among fellow musicians. Even so, the scope and virtuosity of his intuitive style makes him seem an especially tricky subject for a tribute album. Curated by Buck Curran of the folk duo Arborea, We Are All One, in the Sun does an impressive job of capturing the breadth of Basho's work, and it does so by concentrating as much on his eccentric songwriting and general beatific spirit as it does on his guitar skills." Pitchfork Review

A night of music to celebrate the release of this record and other original works performed by

                               Meg Baird, Glenn Jones, Arborea, and Micah Blue Smaldone
