Wild Edges


In 2013, Joe Henry was commissioned by Aaron Greenwald, director of Duke Performances in Durham, NC, to compose an original set of songs to be performed live.  Henry quickly recruited his close friends, Over The Rhine, to also participate.  Folk duo The Milk Carton Kids later rounded out the ensemble.  The work was performed over two nights at the intimate Hayti Heritage Center in Durham on April 11 & 12, 2014.  The evenings were recorded by engineer Ryan Freeland for possible release later.
