There are a few new album projects slate for 2019: a new Daniel Crommie CD/download "starseedhead" will be released at midsummer in June and consists of instrumental compositions with electric dulcimer, flutes and percussion. Rather a departure from the last several albums, "starseedhead" has a more experimental rock vibe. Listen to the title track here.
Also in the works: a new instrumental album from DC Sound Collective and a new Saturnalia Duo album from Daniel Crommie and Leslie Gray that will feature a couple of Bert Jansch songs, new original songs from Daniel and Renaissance, Swedish, French, Irish and German folk tunes.
