BAR HARBOR — A full moon performance and release party for Timbered Lake’s new album “World Undivided” will be held Saturday, Sept. 14 at 9:15 p.m. at the Lompoc Café.
In 2003, singer/songwriter/guitarist Diana Ramsdell Newman joined poet/singer/indigenous percussionist Crow Suncloud to become the indie/folk duo Timbered Lake.
Through their repertoire of original songs, the band’s mission is to help be a catalyst for consciousness, healing, community and peace.
“The double album shaped itself into a concept album and revealed itself to us as speaking on behalf of an undivided world,” Suncloud said.
“‘World Undivided’ is offered with gratitude for all that sustains Mother Earth, for that which sustains the Universal Heart and recalls Heaven on Earth for all.”
Timbered Lake has been featured throughout New England at Native American venues, environmental stewardship events, healing festivals, writers’ forums and on radio.
Newman and Crow Suncloud were recently interviewed on WGDR FM in Plainfield, Vt. and World Undivided was the 15th most played recording on WERU late last month.
During the past few years, Timbered Lake and poet Paul Weiss have collaborated to produce a series of concerts honoring the winter solstice, the earth and the legacy of Leonard Cohen. The band has donated 167 performances to help support the work of The Common Good Café in Southwest Harbor.
“Crow and I feel deeply grateful to the dream team who stepped forward to help us midwife this double album, namely sound engineer Nick Sawyer and photographer Simon Beckford,” Newman said. “In this time of ecological tipping points, global insecurity and polarization we deeply value being able to collaborate to help bring focus and unity back to the commons.”
There is no cover charge for the event, and CDs will be available.
