Our stretch goal is to fund production of a second CD during the next year, "Friend in the Dark," collecting experimental arrangements of our Norse music and many of Ada's earlier songs, which have been out of print while we concentrated on the Sundown project, performed by Ada and Lauren, performing as the duo "Sassafrass: Trickster & King."
We've started recording for "Friend in the Dark" and all completed tracks are availble streaming for free online. If we make our stretch goal of $8,606, we will give every backer who pledges at the $15 level or above an instant download of all the current finished tracks of "Friend in the Dark", and a digital download of the finished album when complete, and we will also pledge to complete the album within one year. If we don't make the stretch goal, we will still release the current tracks as a pre-order, but we will put finishing the CD project on the back burner.
So if you've already pledged or signal boosted the Kickstarter, thank you, and please keep spreading the word; we're very close to making the stretch goal!
Sassafrass will also be performing at Worldcon on Saturday at 2:30pm; the schedule says Trickster and King, but we've had a last-minute addition of another member, which means we can do trios!
