New Release from Local 1000 Member Lui Collins
From Lui: “My band 3 Ravens has just released an album with author Jane Yolen, called The Infinite Dark, centered around Jane’s poetry. I’ve been setting Jane’s poems to music since the 1980’s when I first read her poem ‘Ballad of the White Seal Maid’ and heard the melody clearly in my head.
