Marshweed Ensemble recorded this record at the Berenice house in NE Los Angeles in Nov/Dec of 2020, and it is largely made up of live tracks from the studio album “Marshweed in the Garden.” Tracks 7 and 8 are bonus live tracks from a Berenice Halloween house show performance in 2018.
Being that winter 2020 was at record-high COVID-19 infection rates in our city, the live studio portion of this record was recorded as safely and as socially-distanced-ly as we could, with each musician in a separate room of the house, communicating via headphones. These sessions were a welcome respite to the isolation brought by the pandemic shutdown. We hope that this collection will bring you as much listening enjoyment as recording them did for us.
