Railroad Earth’s Tim Carbone and Lewis & Clarke’s Lou Rogai come together on a collaborative holiday tune “Gathering Song,” both inspired by their love of both Dark Americana and British Folk. All wrapped up into their collaborative name of Cedar Sparks. In November 2018, Carbone and Rogai began tracking the song at Mixolydian Studios with Don Sternacker in the mixing seat in their hometown of Delaware Water Gap, PA. Joining the effort is Julian Rogai on double bass, Damian Calcagne on keys, Jeff Barg on drums with a guest appearance by Regina Sayles on vocals.

A pillar of the explorative nature of folk, dealing with the pensive and at times depression emotions that can set in with the holiday spirit for some, the group tackles the delicate subject with beauty and a crystalline melody that uplifts.
