ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Forever is the Love is the latest CD release from Janet McGarry. It’s been three years since Janet released her last CD, and fans of her music will find this album to be filled with more of the great music we’ve come to expect from her. As always, the album is woven with themes of love, family, faith and life. With fourteen tracks in total, you’ll find a great mixture of songs ranging from traditional bluegrass and gospel to straight ahead country.

“As with everything in our lives, we're always at it together, side by side” says Janet, referencing how she and her husband Serge Bernard collaborated on this project. I grew up listening to country music, and Serge on bluegrass music, so it’s no surprise that I’ve delved into the country side of things for songs by artists such as Melba Montgomery, Wilma Lee Cooper and Dolly Parton. But there are many standard bluegrass songs for the bluegrass lover too. Songs by Jim & Jesse, Ralph Stanley, The Carter Family and one of my musical heros – Hazel Dickens. I also have two new songs - one from my dear friend Louisa Branscomb from Georgia, and one from J. P. Cormier, closer to home in Nova Scotia. These are two great songs from very talented songwriters and I am happy to have them included here.

"Say Forever You'll Be Mine" is the first cut from the CD and is where the name of the CD comes from. This is a song she’s carried with her for a long time and has a great message delivered in a positive, upbeat way. Janet says each of the songs were hand-picked after hours of listening to many of her musical heros, and condensing the list down to fourteen songs. “Sea of Galilee” is immediately recognized as a Carter Family song. Here she is joined by dear friends of theirs - husband/wife team of Heather Berry & Tony Mabe from North Carolina. Heather and Janet met on the “Daughters of Bluegrass” project, through Miss Dixie Hall, and they love to sing together whenever they get the chance.

Other standout tracks include the George Jones/Melba Montgomery classic “Long as We’re Dreaming”; Hazel Dicken’s “A Few Old Memories”; and the great gospel song by Ralph Stanley “The Darkest Hour is Just Before Dawn”.

This album was produced by Serge Bernard, of Diamond Productions PEI. Serge handled much of the instrumentation, and is joined once again by Troy Engle, from Nashville, TN. Troy has been a member of their recording team since their first collaboration back in 2007. Jamie Graves joins them again on piano. And they were so pleased to once again have Meaghan Blanchard add her voice in harmony.

Janet is busy again this summer performing throughout the Maritimes. Joined again this year by her husband, Serge, their “Wildwood” band mates are Denise MacLeod on fiddle, Gail Mullen on upright bass and Dylan Ferguson on guitar. Together, they bring a special blend of traditional bluegrass music to audiences on the Maritime Bluegrass Festival Circuit plus other engagements throughout.
