The Gathering III, produced by Will Ackerman and Tom Eaton

gathering3

We’re happy to announce the THE GATHERING Volume III. Following in the footsteps of the tremendously successful Windham Hill Samplers (all of which won either Gold or Platinum Record awards), The Gathering III is comprised of musicians Tom Eaton and I have produced in the last couple of years at my Imaginary Road Studios in Windham County, Vermont. The first two volumes of THE GATHERING won awards including ZMR’s ALBUM OF THE YEAR AWARD.
THE GATHERING III offers pieces from 19 artists and 74 minutes of music.
Tom and I are very proud of this collection and trust listeners will find a wealth of new music and new musicians to enjoy.

The Gathering II: A new generation of musicians produced by Will Ackerman, and Tom Eaton.

The Gathering II - cover artThe first Gathering CD was released in 2012 and won the coveted ZMR Album of the Year with the highest ratings of any CD in the history of those charts. With another two years of recordings made at Will’s Imaginary Road Studios  in Vermont,  Will  and Tom have once again chosen 21 musicians who they feel will connect to a large audience.

The intent of the collection is to showcase the work that Tom and Will do as producers at Imaginary Road and to give a collective identity to the group of artists they choose to produce.
