Two new recordings by Peter Kater have now been released. Ritual is an album created with R. Carlos Nakai, and Civil War: The Untold Story is the soundtrack to the series with the same name.
In their first recording together in over 10 years, Native American Flutist R. Carlos Nakai and Pianist/Composer, Peter Kater, stand once again united on sacred ground. Joined by legendary reedman, Paul McCandless; etherial vocalist, Trisha Bowden and celebrated cellist, Jaques Morelenbaum, RITUAL invokes a rich and soulful exploration of Self within a musical landscape created through deep listening , presence and love.
Civil War: The Untold Story is a 5-hour documentary series Narrated by Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey) that breaks new ground by examining the war through the lens of the Western Theater – battle in the strategic lands between the Appalachians and Mississippi River.
Rather than revisit the oft-told stories of the battles of Bull Run, Antietam and Gettysburg in the eastern states of Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia, this gripping and comprehensive series instead tells the stories of Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chickamauga, Atlanta and other battles of “the west”. In a nation arguably as divided today as it was 150 years ago, Civil War: The Untold Story is a compelling revenant program that strikes a powerful chord with Americans today.
