THE GIVING TREE BAND CELEBRATE EARTH DAY 2010
FIRE SALE OF PREVIOUS TWO LPS WITH PROCEEDS DONATED TO ENVIRONMENTAL CHARITY
NEW ALBUM COMING FALL 2010
The Giving Tree Band - the
"Greenest band in the land," according to Mother Earth News - are looking forward to
celebrating Earth Day 2010 on April 22 with a fire sale of their previous two full-length albums with 50% of
proceeds going to Global Green USA. They're also scheduled to perform at the University of Chicago's Earth Day
Festival on April 23. This summer, they hit the road to play festivals and club dates across the nation as they
prepare for the release of their 3rd full-length album, The Joke, The Threat, & The Obvious due
out later this fall.

The Giving Tree Band is based out of Yorkville, IL, about an hour south of Chicago. The bluegrass/folk inspired
indie group is steadily building renown across the country for their "stirring musicianship, exemplary songwriting,
and emotionally engaged performances," (The Bluegrass Special). They write well-crafted albums that
"resonate with a spirit that transcends centuries." (Honest Tune Magazine) They are also well known for
their eco friendly efforts. A number of their instruments were hand made from naturally fallen trees and reclaimed
wood, and their second full-length album Great Possessions was recorded with 100% solar-energy at the Aldo
Leopold Legacy Center in Baraboo, WI. During its recording the band camped in a nearby state park and commuted
back and forth via Bicycle, logging nearly 500 miles between them. It is perhaps one of the first Carbon neutral
albums ever made, or as the Chicago Sun Times put it, "the world's greenest album."
As part of The Giving Tree Band's continued commitment to sustainable practices, on Earth Day April 22 they are
launching a fire sale of their past two full-length albums. Unified Folk Theory (2007) will sell for 4.99, and
Great Possessions (2009) for 3.99, or both for $6.99 (51 tracks total) exclusively via
www.thegivingtreeband.com, which will re-launch that day with a webisode featuring the back story of the band and some newly shot live performance clips.
