About this project
Open Orchard Revival
"What Are They Doing In Heaven Today?"
Help keep analog alive! This project is for anyone who still believes that music never sounded better than when it was painstakingly recorded by real musicians on tape and pressed to vinyl. For anyone who keeps a vinyl record collection because it just sounds better! Analog may not be the most popular means of music production, but many of us can agree that it's the best...and most expensive.
This album is a dedicatory project. This past February, musician Dan Buehner lost his grandmother, Edith Young--a selfless and inspirational woman, and a woman who deeply loved music. Edith had asked Dan and his wife Kiki to come sing for her in her home. Sadly, she left this world before they were able to do so. As a way of making it up to her, Dan put together Open Orchard Revival: a collaboration of musicians from the Trappers and the Folka Dots come together to create a gospel album in her honor.
We feel this album belongs to everyone!
While the album began as a tribute to Dan’s grandmother Edith, it has become something we feel belongs to everyone. For all of us who carry a sorrow that burdens, who have loved and lost, for all of us who believe in becoming whole through the experiences that create us, this album is for each one of us, religious and non-religious alike. Open Orchard Revival’s old-timey country gospel album “What Are They Doing in Heaven Today?” sways in the spaces between supplications of the sweet and sorrowful to the indebted invocations of untroubled delight.
We Need Your Help!
In an effort to share this music, we realize we cannot do it alone. We know we need support. With our twelve analog recordings complete, the process of mixing, mastering, duplication as well as CD and vinyl pressing becomes expensive. (Vinyl will be pressed at Furnace Record Pressing) Any monetary contribution you can make to help us complete this project, we sincerely appreciate...
Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges
Our goal for this project from the beginning has been to keep the recordings analog and release the album on vinyl. Our main challenge will be receiving all the funding required to make releasing the album on vinyl a possibility. We are turning to kickstarter so that we can make this dream a reality.
