A Hawk And A Hacksaw, Darkness At Noon

U.S., 2005.

Darkness at Noon is the second studio album by the folk duo, Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost. Their music is inspired by eastern European and particularly Balkan traditions, being mostly instrumental. The album's title, Darkness at Noon, is a reference to the Arthur Koestler novel of the same name. Simultaneously, the first song from the album, Laughter in the Dark, is another novel reference, but to Vladimir Nabokov.
