The Darwin Song Project

Eight of the world’s finest folk artists have worked on the song to mark Charles darwins 200th anniversary. These artists are Chris Wood, Karine Polwart, Stu Hanna, Rachael McShane, Krista Detor, Emily Smith, Mark Erelli and Jez Lowe.

In March 2009 the eight artists had a week-long residential course at Henley Farmhouse near acton Scott where they wrote music relating to the great naturalists life and work.
