It has been a while since we have seen a new album by Laurie Lewis, but this one is certainly a fine addition to her previous work. The recording hits full force right from track 1 with a lovely unaccompanied rendition of HOW CAN I KEEP FROM SINGING. Other really notable cuts include the traditional BEAVER CREEK with Laurie's fiddling backed by Craig Smith on banjo and Tom Rozum on mandolin, plus a superb BURLEY COULTER'S SONG FOR KATE BRANCH, with Laurie's fiddling here backed by Brittany Haas' second fiddle and the cello playing of Tristan Claridge (he of Crooked Still fame). No producer credits are listed (we assume it is Ms. Lewis), but the arrangements are excellent and Laurie has wisely called on some superior musicians for backing., including David Grier (guitar), Todd Phillips (bass), Tim O'Brien and Darol Anger. A very nice record here that showcases Laurie's fine, soulful singing. 14 Songs.
