PRESENTED BT TOM MILLETT
Lisa Hake plays fingerstyle acoustic guitar in alternate tunings and her playing is reminiscent of Bert Jansch and John Renbourn of Pentangle fame. The music is future-past; the songs sound like ancient transcriptions recovered from a bog, but you've never heard anything like them before. Having studied Eastern and Western mythology, the Tarot, runes, astrology, and symbolism; Lisa's lyrical inspiration runs the gamut from a Zen koan or the Mabinogion to a Russian submarine disaster or Julia Butterfly's yearlong tree-sit to save a redwood. Each song is assigned an explanatory I Ching hexagram including the title Tree Over Sea which means truth. The only way to imagine these kaleidoscopic tunes is to become an initiate.
