Caroline Herring - Tales of the Islander

"Tales of the Islander" is off of Caroline Herring's fifth album,
Golden Apples of the Sun, her most intimate and mature album to date, which combines haunting originals with some surprising new takes on old standards.

"Tales of the Islander" is inspired by the life of the famous Mississippi painter, naturalist and writer, Walter Anderson, and this video utilizes his amazing watercolors for the visuals.

Herring has created an album that at once recalls the folk heyday of the 1960s and 70s while also sounding entirely fresh and new. You can check it out and/or buy it out at Caroline's website:


  1. I am a writer who uses Herring's genius as a constant challenge to write better. She deserves all the support we can muster!

  2. Call me da'Musta Busta!
    Thanks Mac,
