Album Notes
I wrote around two dozen songs in 2016, some on the guitar and some on the cello. This album consists of 14 of those songs. Punk Baroque is the first album that centers around the cello as well as the guitar.

The themes of the songs, as with most of the songs I've written, revolve around current events as well as historical events that seem to me to have some kind of particular resonance at the moment.

All songs written by David Rovics, who is also responsible for all the vocals, cello and guitar parts. The album was recorded at Big Red Studio in Corbett, Oregon, with Billy Oskay and David co-producing. Billy also plays all the violin parts, and did the engineering, mixing and mastering, assisted by Peter Wells.
