The Kolar’s Gold album by The Rowan Tree features 8 tracks, original and traditional, and draws on the folk traditions of Cornwall, UK and Karnataka, India. It also includes a booklet describing the history and stories that inspired each track, and beautiful illustrations by Alisier Art.
The Rowan Tree have come a long way since forming in 2017 at the Pan Celtic festival. They have won multiple awards, performed internationally and have been featured on radio and in press around the world. During 2019 they took on their most ambitious project to date- Kolar’s Gold.
The Kolar’s Gold project saw The Rowan Tree collaborating with 60 musicians in India and Cornwall, weaving different musical styles and cultures seamlessly together.
All profits made from sales will go to the Cornwall Heritage Trust (UK) and the KGF School’s Foundation (India)
