A Tribute to the Songs of Kath Bloom

The 2 disc set Loving Takes This Course: A Tribute to the Songs of Kath Bloom, will be released by the Australian label Chapter Music on April 7, 2009. Sixteen artists from around the world have come together to pay tribute to the songs of Connecticut folksinger Kath Bloom. Compiled over two years by Chapter’s Guy Blackman and San Francisco filmmaker Caveh Zahedi (who first met Kath in 1980), Loving Takes This Course features artists such as Bill Callahan, Devendra Banhart, Mark Kozelek, The Dodos and Scout Niblett. Loving Takes This Course is a two disc set, featuring one disc of covers and one of the original versions of Kath’s songs. Kath began luring listeners in the seventies, and in the eighties she made six albums with avant-garde guitarist Loren Connors which are now collector’s items. In the nineties her song “Come Here” completed the Richard Linklater film Before Sunrise.
