Rockwood Ferry features the original music of songwriter Tenzin Chopak (vocals, acoustic guitar, piano) expressed through an ensemble of some of Ithaca’s finest musicians: banjo legend Richie Stearns, folk fiddler/singer Rosie Newton, gypsy jazz violin virtuoso Eric Aceto, and classically trained cross-over double bass phenomenon Ethan Jodziewicz.
“Rockwood Ferry speaks with a haunting language … descended from roots, jazz, and progressive folk…. Chopak's lyrics are a fluid collage of waking dreams painted in the colors of his East Tennessee upbringing and beyond. The result: passionate and beautiful music let loose with blazing energy.”
