Catch the sound of the Equinox band

Autumnal

autumalReleased in 2011

Autumn - season of color, season of change, season of gathering in. We've gathered a collection of tunes and songs that celebrate all of the hues of fall. Feel the crisp cool air, watch the slow spiral dance of falling leaves, smell the tang of smoky wood fires, and taste the crisp sweetest of the ripened apples as fall settles in for its brief but exquisite reign over our hemisphere. In the words of Charlie Maguire,"when the hay and straw are in the barn, stacked to the roof, tier on tier, smelling like summer come and gone, around the place, I'll know that fall is here". Season of harvest, season of completion, season of EQUINOX, Autumnal Equinox.
