As Y’all Like It
original songs from Kentucky Shakespeare’s 2019 production of As You Like It
composed and performed by Aaron Bibelhauser

Aaron Bibelhauser – vocals, guitar, banjo, dobro
Michael Cleveland – fiddle, mandolin
Chris Douglas – upright bass

The new album release, As Y’all Like It, songs from Kentucky Shakespeare, contains five original tracks featuring Bibelhauser and guest artists including Grammy-winning musician Michael Cleveland. CD sales support Kentucky Shakespeare.

“We set our 2019 production of ‘As You Like It’ in 19th century Kentucky, as a love letter to the Commonwealth, with Aaron’s soulful music as an integral part of the show. His heartfelt and foot-stomping tunes helped to make the timelessness of Shakespeare even more relevant, as if the words were written today. We didn’t know it back then, but now, in 2020, it means even more, as we experience this joyful music again, together.” – Matt Wallace, Producing Artistic Director, Kentucky Shakespeare

“I am so excited to share these new songs and even be so bold as to turn a few Bluegrass fans into Shakespeare fans… and vice versa. It’s been an honor to work with all the talented folks at Kentucky Shakespeare, and to incorporate their mission and vision in the production of these recordings. I was initially dumbfounded with the opportunity to essentially, co-write songs with one of the most profound, timeless, and influential humans to ever scribble words on a page. Exploring Shakespeare’s universal truths, is an immensely powerful experience and has become a great source of inspiration for me. I want to extend a huge ‘thank you’ to Michael Cleveland, for his continued friendship and encouragement, and to Matt Wallace.” – Aaron Bibelhauser

Aaron Bibelhauser is a singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist from Louisville, KY. In addition to writing songs recorded by award winning bluegrass artists including Balsam Range and Del McCoury Band, he’s taken first place in the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at Merlefest and earned a nomination for the IBMA’s prestigious Song of The Year Award. He has also had song placements in television, film, and theater. A chart-topping solo recording artist, radio broadcaster, session player, and record producer, Bibelhauser also fronts the Kentucky based bluegrass band, Relic, along with his twin brother, Adam.

“Wallace brought in award-winning bluegrass singer-songwriter Aaron Bibelhauser (of the band Relic) to pen original music for the show — with great results.” – Marty Rosen, LEO Weekly review of 2019 production”Aaron Bibelhauser… scored the nearly 400-year-old lyrics found in ‘As You Like It.’ The end-result sounds like a collection of Appalachian folk classics.” – Ashlie Stevens, WFPL review of 2019 production

“I mentioned earlier that our staff at Kentucky Shakespeare is inventive. Case in point would be the hiring of local bluegrass musician Aaron Bibelhauser who composed several songs that were interjected throughout the show, using lyrics/words/phrases that were common for Shakespeare’s time, including “Sweet Lovers Love the Spring”. Driving the spirit of Kentucky and the allure of love in the Springtime, Mr. Bibelhauser’s songs were hummable and downright danceable adding a new dimension to a production that was already entertaining.” – Annette Skaggs, Arts-Louisville.com review of 2019 production
