Earth Harmony’s Music — Eclectic Folk
Earth Harmony performs a mix of contemporary and traditional folk styles as well as original tunes that include such themes as social justice, peace-making, finding one’s place in the world, the joys [and challenges] of parenting, the lighter side of aging, exploring life’s spiritual connections and finding humor in everyday life.
For example, listen to these original tunes: Sandcastles, Orphan Train and Henry Berg. Or check out I Will Feed Your Sheep and The Peaceable City. We also have folk songs galore for little folks and their families. Listen here to Colonel Kernel and Lipid Blues.
Over the past 10 years, Earth Harmony has indeed been on A Joy of a Journey. In this demo set of recordings, we wanted to share a few of the songs that have carried us through those years – some are recorded live, some are homemade, some have been professionally mastered. During our time together, these songs have been interpreted, arranged and performed – sometimes celebrated – by various iterations of this eclectic folk group.All songs were written by Christina Nordstrom.
