The Sheldon is pleased to announce the release of Acoustic River, anew CD produced by The Sheldon to thank annual fund donors to the non-profit Sheldon Arts Foundation.  The CD is available exclusively to Sheldon donors of $100 or more.

Donations can be made by calling The Sheldon Development Department at 314-533-9900 or on-line at
www.TheSheldon.org. The CD features the donated talents of top national and local artists including Mike Marshall and Chris Thile, John McEuen, Kathy Chiavola, Lydia Ruffin, Dave Toretta and Connie Fairchild, Darrell Scott, Mark Holland, Pete Huttlinger, Peter Mayer, John Higgins, Tom Hall, and Dale Benz, and pays tribute to the majesty, beauty, magic, and as we have unfortunately seen herein the St. Louis area, sometimes destructive power of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. 

Dale Benz, Sheldon Operations Director and a contributor to the CD, writes in the Acoustic Riverliner notes: “Ariver can be turbulent or tranquil, but it is always moving to become one with the ocean. More than a lake or even the sea, an ever-changing river makes us ponder the passing of time and think about our lives, fostering a diversity of thoughts and expressions.”

The songs on this CD bring this statement to life, through traditional river songs such as “The Water is Wide,” “Fisher’s
Hornpipe,” and “God Moves on the Water,” and originals including “Ghost of the Mighty Mississippi” by Kathy Chiavola,
“Acoustic Traveler on the Missouri” by John McEuen, “Goin’ Down the River” by Sheldon Executive Director Paul Reuter,
and the inspirational “Blue River” by Peter Mayer. Acoustic River CDs are available by donating $100 or more to the Sheldon Arts Foundation.   Call The Sheldon Development Office at 314-533-9900, or donate on-line at www.TheSheldon.org.
