CD H-M Laura MacKenzie, Evidence $14.95
Laura MacKenzie, Evidence Tracklist:
Evidence is a collection of songs, airs and waltzes from many different sources (Irish, Scots Gaelic, French, English, and from Dáithí Sproule, and Laura herself), all in a musical mood both calm and bright. The album features guest appearances from Dáithí Sproule (of Altan - guitar and vocals), Dean Magraw (guitar) and harpist Andrea Stern, as well as Brian Miller (guitar), Sean Egan (clarinet), Dick Rees (accordions) and John Wright (bass). A stunningly beautiful collection, inspired in part by the artwork of Nick Lethert, which graces this CD.
"The majority of the pieces are instrumental, showcasing MacKenzie's amazing command of a vast array of instruments. The playing and arrangements are very bright and cheery, in a calming way. They evoke images of a quiet, green forest with a waterfall.... Her skill on this many instruments is staggering. This is the perfect CD to listen to on a rainy day, curled up with a nice cup of tea. It is an album that will lift the blues, calm you and transport you to a sunny, green forest. What more could you possibly want?" - Rambles
"Lovely lines and excellent wind playing." - Green Man Review
