The album release is December 21, Winter Solstice, 2020. “The songs of The Peasants’ Revolt show that the lot of peasants varied across the country.

Yet most people (between 80% or 90%) lived off the land. Winters were long and hard, cold and hungry. In the summer months, they would wake at first light and work until the light faded. Peasants were mainly tied to the service of a local lord: the church, a baron, and through them to the king.” – John Reed John, Jo and Ali join Baruch for a conversation about the inspiration and making of this music and we’ll be listening to selections from the album.
