A Holy Measure

A Holy Measure by Wovenhand

Directed largely by a joyful sounding percussive beat, the song surrounds the listener in hints of Eastern musical influences.  Edwards’ has, in my opinion, become more comfortable with his voice and how it melds with the music over the years and this song is a good example.  The acoustic elements rival anything that would be found on the newer wave of folk music (The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Mumford & Sons) and, yet, Wovenhand’s music is still largely unknown in America.  It’s a crying shame.
