After performing at a festival in central Wisconsin, I stopped for a show at the Ark Center for the Arts in the little town of Viroqua, WI. I was floored by the acoustics of the room and eventually made plans to make a live recording on site at the 100 year old church. Tom Herbers (low, trampled by turtles, the jayhawks) jumped at the opportunity to produce and engineer the effort. I put together a band and we set out towards Viroqua in the dead of winter. Pulling up with vehicles full of tape machines, vintage microphones, notebooks of lyrics and musical instruments we made the Ark our home for three days. The result is “Shadows in the Sunset.” It holds in its grooves ten thousand miles of asphalt, about eight pairs of good shoes, and the generosity of a thousand strangers. It’s a collection of stories about the beauty of blazing sunsets, the art of saying goodbye, and letting endings turn into new beginnings. -Jack Klatt
