POLLEN NATION, The Movie

Hello, BanjoSnakers all!

Just wanted to let y'all know that the new documentary short film "Pollen Nation" features yours truly on the soundtrack! Local Taos musician and songwriter Michael Schorr was hired to compose the music for this remarkable little movie, and he drafted me and my longtime cohort, Don Richmond, to play on it as well. Big fun!

The film addresses the developing problem (soon to be a full-blown crisis, if we don't figure it out) of honeybee decline through the eyes of a third-generation beekeeper and his business of transporting hives all over the country in order to pollenate crops. Very interesting stuff, if you ask me. You can check out all you'll need to know to catch a screening of this important documentary at www.pollennationthemovie.com.

In other news, Bone Orchard's new CD is out and available! You can pick up a copy of "A Romance Of Ghosts" at the CD release shows this weekend at El Monte Sagrado and The Adobe Bar here in Taos, New Mexico, or order the CD from their cool website here. Check it out!

And keep on watchin' my website for lots of improvments and updates soon... my life has been so busy and crazy and emotionally overloaded over the last month-and-a-half or so that I can hardly find my own head, muchless get anything else done, but hopefully things are beginning to smooth out a bit, and we'll have song samples, downloads, video clips, and all sorts of other cool stuff in the next couple of months. In the meantime, listen to Bone Orchard, love the honeybees, and keep on folk-n-rollin'!

Yours, Chipper

The bee thing is very serious. If we have to hand-pollinate everything we eat, an awful lot of folks are gonna get reaaaaal skinny...
