Yo Chuck!

2009 marked the bi-centennial of the birth of Charles Darwin. At the Shrewsbury Folk Festival in rural Shropshire, England the Darwin Song Project was organized. Eight of the top folk artists from the US and the UK - Chris Wood, Karine Polwart, Mark Erelli, Rachael McShane, Jez Lowe, Stu Hanna, Krista Detor and Emily Smith - came together for a week to write songs about the life of Darwin. There was a concert premiere on March 19, 2009 in Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury and it was recorded for a live CD release. Here's one of their songs and you can buy it and find more at their website (http://www.darwinsongproject.com/). Enjoy!
