Album Notes
Phil Edmonds, an avid guerrilla gardener, musician and author, is a native of Killaloe, Co. Clare, Ireland, where he learned to play the tin whistle in a place where he says, "The backyard was the fields." When he was 14 years old, Phil, along with his family, emigrated to America and settled in South Providence, where he still lives. Besides The Gnomes, Phil presently plays whistles and button accordion in several Rhode Island ensembles the Criss Cross Orchestra directed by Ghanaian Obuamah Laud Addy, The Providence Wholebellies, and Celebrating Ireland in Story and Song. The world music scene of Providence has had a big influence on Phil's music. Catch him some Friday nights sitting in with Zerui DePina's Cape Verde band at Club Tropical in Central Falls.

Feeling connected with the natural world, being of service to, and growing community by doing Phil Things!, expressing joy in daily life (the joy that is lacking in this culture) and inviting people to dance and play music to experience ecstasy together – these are the priorities in my life and the feelings behind this music.

This music is dedicated to the awakening that is taking hold throughout our planet that, rather being entangled in this culture, points to other possible ways of living. People are starting to focus less on acquiring material wealth and more on the quality of life. At the heart of this awakening is the realization that every species of life is as much a part of this evolutionary journey as we are, and the necessity to right our relationship with, and attitude towards, the world around us.
