Blue Earth is my debut recording, available in CD and digital download. Produced by the mega-talented Anne Weiss, it is a collection of original and cover songs that speak to the multiple stories of connection and disconnection to the world and each other. It is socially conscious blues/jazz/folk/funk...playful, soulful, rhythmic, and topical, it engages the heart, mind, and feet all at the same time.
It features talented musicians in the Portland music community, including
Jean Pierre Garau, Arcellus Sykes, Spank Hopkins, Scott Law, Gideon Freudmann, David Lipkind, and James Mason.
Barbara Ford - lead vocals
Jean Pierre Garau - keyboards
Arcellus Sykes - bass and electric bass
Spank Hopkins - percussion
Anne Weiss - acoustic guitar, vocals
Scott Law - mandolin, slide guitar
Gideon Freudmann - cello
