Singing Knives Rec. The Feather Gatherers : Leaves/Tower At Bollingen -single- (UK,rec.2004)****
I am not sure for how long this group or project exists. Anyhow, in 2005 Jonathan Marshall with Sharron Kraus recorded these 2 moody tracks. “Leaves” is played in a troubadour psychfolk style directing a bit towards the song albums of In Gowan Ring. We hear subtle guitar and banjo and dual vocals. Remember how some stringed instruments used to be played by feathers in medieval times. Gathering Feathers is a name with a reference to a sweet delicacy. On “Tower at Bollingen” with banjo, harmonium, I realize that “troubadour” might not be the most correct description, for the song is describing very much personal experience and images, soft and gentle, and it can be experienced by others, but especially more in quite and lonely moments, comfortably at home.
