About the artist: Four outrageously diverse singer-songwriter-musicians united under gourd. Indeed, playing instruments made from these wooden cucubits brings their music together to make folk funk philosophy to feed your wildest pumpkin longings. Penelope Swales (guitar), Carl Pannuzzo (drums), Mal Webb (bass, mbira and bugle) and Andrew Clermont (violing, mandolin, and guitar) sing songs written by themselves and a few dear friends. All the instruments are handmade from gourds by Penelope under the guidance of home-grown, world renowned luthier, Jack Spira. Outrageous eclectic beauty. Imagine Joni Mitchell and James Brown getting down in Bob Marley's pumpkin patch in gourdy costumes.
