VARIOUS 'Songcatcher'

VARIOUS 'Songcatcher'

  • $13.50


Inspired by the movie of the same name, this is a lovely, well-produced all-acoustic collection of 16 traditional songs performed by some of the best female singers in the country & folk traditions. What a joy to hear these wonderful voices removed from the trappings of Nashville or Los Angeles production for a change, tackling some great old traditional songs! Almost every track here is a highlight performance: Sara Evans doing MARY OF THE WILD MOOR, Dolly Parton WHEN LOVE IS NEW, Iris DeMent's PRETTY SARO, Emmylou Harris' BARBARA ALLEN, Deana Carter's CUCKOO BIRD, Gillian Welch doing WIND & RAIN, Roseanne Cash's FAIR AND TENDER LADIES, etc. A fine disc, highly recommended. Also Patty Loveless, Hazel Dickens, Julie Miller, Maria McKee, Allison Moerer, Pat Carroll.
