About Sharron Kraus: Sharron Kraus is a singer/musician/songwriter with a gift for beautiful and heartbreaking songs from a deep-seated storytelling mythology. Her music, rooted in the folk traditions of England and Appalachia, is characterized by soil-rich vocals, haunting banjo, fine acoustic guitar, and visionary word-craft. She is like the roving storyteller, bringing tales of terror, sadness and joy to a stranger's hearth on a dark and stormy night.
Not surprising, Kraus has been featured in The Wire, Arthur Magazine, Ptolemaic Terrascope and Broken Face. Her fanbase includes veteran folkies Shirley Collins and Archie Fisher as well as indie figureheads Michael Gira, David Tibet, and Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore. Her list of collaborations is just as impressive in the past, she worked with the likes of The Iditarod, Fursaxa and Meg Baird and Helena Espvall of Espers.
http://www.sharronkraus.com. About Michael Tanner: Though this record is the first one that has Michael Tanner's name on the sleeve, he's far from being a newcomer. Most of his solo-output has been released under the name Plinth, on labels like Second Language or Apollolaan. He also recorded and played live with the likes of Pantaleimon, United Bible Studies and Tex La Homa. Before this album, he already worked with Sharron on her album The Fox's Wedding. http://www.myspace.com/michaeltanner.
About In the Rheidol Valley: As the title suggest, this LP was recorded in the Rheidol Valley in Wales. Sharron and Michael took some instruments with them, went for a long walk in the valley, and did some recordings there. This results in a mix of improvisations, songs with a folk structure and some field recordings. The album has a very organic feel to it from start to finish. Recommended if you like The Iditarod, Fursaxa, folk, drone, improvisation, both artists' earlier output. Limited to 250 copies.
