Since the days before David was king, shepherds have sat, tending their flocks, and played on their flutes and stringed instruments. We can still hear them calling to one another across continents, their music soaring into the night, conjuring up images of Galilee, Lebanon, Persia, Mesopotamia, Africa -- with the enchanting sound of lyre, harp, psaltry and lute wafting through our imaginations. Today the tradition continues: the modern day equivalent to these ancient instruments being the six string acoustic guitar. The sound has changed ever so slightly, but the haunting ability to stir the soul remains. And so we offer you hymns of praise, songs of inspiration and music for meditation and prayer, played by a master craftsman and world-class musician, Bobby Stanton. You may have heard him featured on Garrison Keillor's 'A Prairie Home Companion' or playing in one of several Broadway musicals. You may have also caught his magical fingers strumming with the likes of Mark O'Connor, James Taylor, Richie Havens, Noel Redding, Bo Diddley, Susan Tedeschi, Maureen McGovern, Donny Osmond, The Platters, Fabian, Charlie Daniels, only to name a few. In his spare time (what spare time could he possible have?) he shares his talent and technique as a teacher of guitar at Berklee College of Music in Boston where he was awarded the first ever 'Ovation' Award. We bring you music for the spirit and soul in a diversity of cultures. Produced and Orchestrated by Peter Link Enjoy!
