Ethnobiology Song

The Ethnobiology Song (Music by Denise Glover; words by Denise Glover with help from Dana Lepofsky)

A few years back, we started a tradition of jamming at our annual SoE conferences. I wrote this song for that purpose, and to share during our "variety show" at the Columbus conference (2011). I just recently recorded the song in a mini home recording studio; this is a one-woman show since I'm playing mandolin, guitar, and bass (and singing)--thanks to overdubbing, of course. This version is not perfect, but I hope you enjoy!
