Music for the Joe Goode Performance Group’s production of their dance theatre work ‘Folk’. Features Custer on keyboards and clarinets, and violinist Julian Smedley on one track.  Sinewy, haunting melodies, atmospheric melanges, funky rhythms.

Folk premiered June 19, 2003 at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco and reveals “rural” dwellers in the full panoply of their complexity and contradictions. It debunks the myth of the “simple” person and delves into the rich territory of the personal vulnerability and magic of the individual. Part of a trilogy that included ‘Hometown’ and ‘Grace.’
