Bow is the third album from Two Dark Birds, the critically acclaimed  band from Pakatakan Mountain in The Catskills. Bow is a cycle of songs about openings and awakenings, about the spirit of nature and the nature of spirit.  

“Bow, the latest luminous and ambitious collection of poet-grade and quietly experimental folk music written by Steve Koester and performed by his loose assemblage of Catskill cronies. . . All hail!”  - HV1

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.
