Droplets

 

 

“Droplets,” by Kevin Weed, is an album of piano reflections on the play, “The Diviners,” by Jim Leonard, Jr, which is set during the great depression as the dust bowl is making water extremely scarce, hence the irony in the title. The music reflects various moods present in the characters, setting and situations in the play. Rather than imitate music of the time period and locale, Kevin focuses on the inner feelings of the folks in fictional Zion, Indiana, pop. 40.
