Album Notes
These Fields is an independent release of eleven original songs, each a portrait of lives lived and roads travelled. The instrumentation lends an old- time country feel augmented with roots flavoured blues and jazz. It boasts a stellar line-up of some of Canada's finest musicians, co-producer and recording engineer, Greg Simm plays multiple stringed instruments and tuba along with Bill Stevenson, Tom Easley, Geoff Arsenault, Thom Swift, Gordon Stobbe, Russ Brannon, Scott Marshall, Evan Shaw, Burke Carroll, Ross Billard and Mike Farrington.
Betty was born into a large, singing family in the tiny, remote community of Caribou Gold Mines, Nova Scotia. From parlour gatherings with generations of family to harmonizing with her five sisters she learned from a broad repertoire that reached back across the centuries. In a career spanning some forty years she has learned from and performed with a lengthy list of singers, songwriters and musicians.
Betty is particularly known for her ear in harmony singing and reviving rare, old songs from the roots of early country, blues and old-time music of North America by giving them new life with unique harmonies and instrumentation.
A timeless advocate of old-time music, she has co-produced two of her own CDs, The Harvest is Ready, 1997, and A Song in the Air, 2002, both recorded with The Mighty Oak String Band to critical acclaim.
