“..a luminous and ambitious collection of poet-grade and quietly experimental folk music.”  - HV1

“…poised, structured, self-aware, ambitious.” - DVeight

“…brimming with pastoral energy and light.” - Chronogram

Recorded in Woodstock, NY with Producer/Engineer Chris Maxwell, Bow was written, performed & produced by Steve Koester with the assistance of Jeff Lipstein, Josh Roy Brown, Marco Benevento, Carrie Bradley, Sibel Finn, Don Piper, Jason Mills, Sandy Bell, and Jude Webre.
