Transforming Wendell Berry's Writing into Music

It didn’t take long for Utah-based composer, Andrew Maxfield, to fall in love with the poetry of Wendell Berry.

However, it did take 6-years to figure out exactly how he could turn those words into a piece of music.

The journey led to him through the roots of Kentucky music and to a collaboration with both Berry and blues musician Eric Bibb.

I recently caught up with Andrew Maxfield, to hear more of the final composition called, “Celebrating Wendell Berry in Music."
