songwriter anais mitchell ('hadestown', 'young man in america') teams up with songwriter / instrumentalist jefferson hamer ('great american taxi', 'the murphy beds') to co-arrange a series of english and scottish ballads from the francis james child collection. the album, 'child ballads', was recorded in nashville with legendary producer / engineer gary paczosa (alison krauss, dolly parton), and released by wilderland records. these are traditional ballads that have been carefully re-imagined to embrace an american sensibility as well as a deep respect for the heritage of the tradition.
