Radical Knitting Circle
The Radical Knitting Circle has successfully dragged the river and found the remains of an old soul full of heartbreak and hammered fingernails, lost constituencies and the poetry of a hymn. On finding this fortune, they have pieced together a sound both raucous yet melodic, traditional though progressive. Drawing on the captive imagination of the 20th century American heart, RKC infuses folk-rock, jazz, and the wavering immigrant's song to create something both challenging and beautifully entertaining for the listener. Lyrical and humorous, yet always contemplative goes the narrative of their songwriting, performance and exposition.
