ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Real Roots Café, Netherlands:
“...I have take Western Highways by John and Sofie to my heart....a surprising, varied and beautiful folk CD with interesting music for followers of Irish/Scottish music as well as lovers of American folk. Go listen and enjoy!”

Red Hot Rock Magazine, Sweden:
“...If Alison Krauss recorded an album in the Scottish Highlands it would sound something like this, but that would be unnecessary, since John and Sofie have already made such a good album...”

Sur la Route de Memphis Magazine, France:
“...Folk music beyond the ordinary, with a lot of personality and know-how.”

John Mitchell and Sofie Jonsson's musical collaboration began in the Highlands of Scotland and now continues in the hills of western Sweden. Their debut album "Western Highways" was released in 2011 and features guest artists such as Ulf Nygårds on dobro, mandolin, banjo and lap steel, Christy O'Leary on whistle, and Bert Deivert on bozouki.

Combining their love for American music with their Celtic roots, they offer "a cohesiveness to all this which springs from good choices. Everything is here because hundreds of performances have taught them to deliver these songs and tunes in their own style; it's all folk music, after all; you just need performers as skilful as these two to demonstrate how it all fits together.” (Flyinshoes Review, Scotland)
