Daniel Hecht – Guitar
Close to Earth is this composer, author, environmentalist and activist. From his ealry beginnings in music and performance, to the last few decades of environmental activism and stewardship, Daniel Hecht has built a lifetime of work of reverence for that which aims for simplicity and beauty in a pared-down presentation.
Since his years as a recording artist and professional touring musician, Hecht has still nonetheless been prolific in his involvement with outreach, activism and education for global and local environmental issues. He currently serves as executive director of Green Mountain Water Environment Association.
This reissue of his 1973 self-released debut is a strictly instrumental, solo guitar album. High energy, classically influenced folk music from the 70s Midwest mind of a future environmentalist.
