"...one of the best albums of the year." - Chris Spector, Midwest Record

Recorded solo, voice and guitar, Grapevine is Calhoun’s tribute to the folk tradition that has influenced and shaped his life. Stephen Foster’s “O Susanna” has been restored to its original length of four verses; “Casey Jones” and “John Henry” reworked to reflect new historical research. There’s a cowboy song, two whaling ballads, a river shanty, a spiritual, 3 old and one new song from Ireland, and a reworked “How Can I Keep From Singing?” that blends Robert Wadsworth Lowry’s 1895 hymn with folk versions. Inner sleeve features photos of: Casey Jones in the cab of his engine; Odetta; Vedran Smailovic, subject of Colum Sand’s song “Buskers” playing his cello in the rubble of the National Library in Sarajevo; and the cover to the original sheet music for Thomas S. Allen’s “15 Years on the Erie Canal” from 1905. 


“I tapped into a powerful feeling of ancestry while working on the material for Bound to Go, and when I went back to the other folk songs I’ve always sung, they had acquired a new dimension. Folk songs connect us to our ancestors.”
