Garth Hudson: The Sea To The North

After decades of lending his multi-instrumentalist and composing talents to notables in the folk and rock world, Garth Hudson has released his first solo recording. "The Sea To The North" features six compositions showing why Hudson is not just a master of many musical traditions, but a boundary-breaking performer who likes to tell musical (and other) tales with great spontaneity and wit.
