This recording of Folk-Legacy's flagship trio took place over two nights at the Coffeehouse Extempore in Minneapolis. Performing both new and traditional songs, the set offers a strong survey of Bok, Muir, and Trickett's musicianship with a wide range of instrumentation, including twelve-string guitar, flute, harp, whistle, hammer dulcimer, and cellamba - a fretted, six-string cello created by Bok. On occasion, they are also joined by a 400 voice choir.

“Ann Muir and Gordon Bok first met in 1961 when both were fulfilling singing engagements in Vermont. A year later, Ann met Ed Trickett at a musical gathering in Hartford, Connecticut, where Ed was a student. Convinced that Gordon and Ed ought to know one another, Ann arranged for them to meet "in absentia" through an exchange of tapes. Gordon was working as a sailor along the northeast coast; Ed was heading west to continue his studies, and Ann remained in Connecticut. For seven years they corresponded, swapping songs by tape. It was not until Ed returned to Connecticut in 1969 that the trio finally got together to make live music.”

“Gordon Bok, Ann Mayo Muir and Ed Trickett are not a "trio" in the conventional sense. In sharing the concert stage, each retains his or her musical identity, often performing as many solo songs as those performed together. The texture of the concerts is extremely varied and reflects their diverse tastes and experiences of music. You may hear sea songs, mountain songs and river songs, mournful tales of far-off lands, dances, stories, cantefables and an array of instrumental combinations. You will certainly hear the unforgettable harmonies of Bok, Muir and Trickett and experience the sense of wholeness that arises from their mutual affection and respect for each other and for the music.”

-Sandy Paton, co-founder Folk-Legacy Records
