I typically am not a fan of ultra-traditional folk or americana but there are exceptions.  This album is rich in traditional Appalachian instrumentation and the vocals are deceptively old school but there is a quality to the writing and the performance that makes this album one that I cannot stop listening to.

Similar in the style of Martha Scanlan, the writing is an update to a genre that so often only follows the old tired standards.  I guess that what makes the difference for me.  This music is an original work that deeply touches an emotional chord for the writer and listener alike.

Simply a magical trip back to another time.
