Okay – this isn’t a new album – sorry about that. But it is pretty cool! I was browsing the Free Music Archive last night and found this gem in the Bluegrass section: “Hi and Ho, We Plant Trees“. According to the description, it’s a 2008 compilation by Peppermill Records “done by treeplanters, about treeplanting”.
There are two “discs” in this compilation, which includes a very wide range of artists (including, to my pleasant surprise, The Be Good Tanyas). There’s a wide range of styles captured in this compilation, including a lot of bluegrass. I particularly recommend The Gruff’s “General Store”. Well worth the download!
So, you know, in case you were going to plant trees any time soon – this is the album for you.
