Rob McHale: Fields

Release Date: June 2014
Label: Wooden Door Records

Fields is about things we have lost and things we have found, a brush with history, home and family. The CD takes you through the Civil War without choosing sides. It let’s you reflect on the past through an honest and open window. Also included among its ten tracks are a brief foray into Irish history and reflective songs that focus on chances, family and the environment – with good wishes to close out the disc
