World at Large is the fourth record by the eclectic chamber folk ensemble the Dust Poets. Melding perceptive and melodic songwriting with the creative juices of five sensitive and worldly musicians, the Dust Poets have spent the last seven years touring across North America honing the trademark sound that binds World at Large together. Drawing on folk, bluegrass, gritty alt-country and 60's soul, while tackling topics such as homelessness, loss, life on the road, and the pitfalls of an oil-crazed culture, it's the band's distinct personality that shines through on World at Large. Eager fans of the band will find all the stunning vocals, daring arrangements, and insightful lyrics the Poets are known for in their most polished and personal effort yet.
