In Their Words: “Inspired by Jean Ritchie’s iconic version, I reimagined this great folk song. I find its lyrics in particular moving and captivating. Supported by the beautiful musicianship of a stellar ensemble (Hazel Royer – vocals; Kevin Barry – lap steel guitar; Maxfield Anderson – mandolin), I tried to create a fresh take of this classic. The result is one of my favorite tracks on my debut EP, Invisible Treasure. When creating my music, I take an open-ended, melting pot approach — my influences come from folk, blues, singer-songwriter music, and jazz. I enjoy using traditional materials such as this one as a springboard for creativity, expanding upon the traditions I love to create my own personal, modern sound.” — Ira Klein
