"Save the Monarch - Butterfly
" is a song performed as a duet by Dar Williams
and John Hall
. Recorded at Millbrook Sound Studio, with Peter O'Brien
on drums and Scott Petito
on bass, this stately tune unfolds into a gorgeous bridge featuring Dar's expressive, emotional voice.
John and Dar have never recorded together before, and their alternating lines and harmonies show how they listen to each other and phrase together.
When John called Dar to ask if she would sing on this tune, she had just finished doing a workshop on saving the honeybees. These are two performers who have long been involved in environmental activity, in the Hudson Valley and beyond.
