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. This project, something very new for me, incorporates some of my earlier settings plus two more set specifically for The Infinite Dark…”
