Spruce and Maple Music
The CD was recorded live at the Freight and Salvage on May 8, 2013. "The 15 songs include many written on my retreat in Wyoming in the Winter of 2012, and the performances have that shimmering excitement of their newness about them."
Laurie Lewis launched Spruce and Maple Music as an independent record label in 2001 with the release of "Kristin's Story." Now, nearly a decade later, we have a small catalog of critically-acclaimed releases to our name.
Spruce and Maple Music is an ASCAP-affiliated publishing company, administered by BMG Chrysalis .
Why "Spruce and Maple?" Aside from being beautiful trees, spruce and maple have been the most commonly-used woods in the making of violin family instruments for the past 400 or so years. The top of a violin is generally spruce, while the back, sides, and neck are maple. Together, spruce and maple are the perfect combination of tone woods, when it comes to bowed instruments. Fiddle-obsessed singer and writer Laurie Lewis founded the company, and gave us our name.
