Among the Oak and Ash: Among the Oak and Ash

Among The Oak & Ash is Josh Joplin and Garrison Starr, two singer-songwriters drawn to the drama and darkness in traditional American and British folk songs. Their self-titled CD recasts many songs in moody and evocative folk-rock settings. The result is well-known tales, historic figures and forgotten moments that emerge with new realism and vibrancy.
