The Giving Tree Band: Live Webcast and More

Band to perform live on Woodsongs Radio Hour on Monday November 3rd at 7pm EST.
The Giving Tree Band planted its roots more than five years ago in a foundation of Americana music with a sustainable philosophy. Less than a year has passed since the release of their debut double album, Unified Folk Theory, and TGTB have already drawn considerable attention from both entertainment and environmental press including the first ever music review in Mother Earth News magazine. They have recorded a whole lot more music to be released including a Christmas album (Bring It Back Home For Christmas), a carbon neutral album (Great Possessions), a live tribute album celebrating HH Dalai Lama (Concert For Peace), and several songs inspired by the upcoming film Public Enemies starring Johnny Depp. TGTB peformed those songs impromptu on a Friday in April and so impressed casting staff that they found themselves on set as extras in a scene with Johnny Depp on Monday. Studio versions include Casey Driessen of the Sparrow Quartet.  Needless to say, The Giving Tree Band has kept busy.

On Monday November 3, 2008 at 6:59PM (EST), fans can watch the live webcast of the band recording at the Kentucky Theater in Lexington for the Woodsongs Radio Hour at  The radio program will then air two and three months later on 500 stations, XM Satellite and likely on PBS Television.

Songs from all their projects will also be performed in primetime at the first Chicago Bluegrass and Blues Festival, Saturday November 22, 2008 at the historic Congress Theatre. The Giving Tree Band will play two sets, one before The David Grisman Quintet and the other before The Avett Brothers.  More information about the indoor festival is available at
