blog image 1Three Lobed Recordings and Fina Music have joined forces to assemble a sprawling, ambitious benefit project Honest Strings: A Tribute To The Life And Work Of Jack Rose. This massive collection includes covers of traditional material and original words and music inspired by his example . Forty artists participated in the project, which is over six hours long. Given the length, the album is only available as a digital download for the extremely nominal price of $15! All proceeds go to Rose's family. To listen to music from the record, get more information, or participate in the memorial by purchasing it, go to the Fina store here. The complete roster of participating artists is below, and each song can be heard on the Fina site.
