Both albums
I first heard Laura\'s music in Fern\'s shop on 2nd st. Bought her CD on the spot. Played it and loved her music and her versatility. I immediately went to her website and purchased Allusions. It was her earlier work and was also very good. But I think her latest album was the best. I love the cello and violin with her guitar. I would love an entire album with those three instruments. I don\'t care for blue grass but I love those other two albums and hope she will have more music in the future of that type. I would love to be notified when a new album comes out. Thank you.

A joyous auditory experience. I have a whole new appreciation for solo fingerst
The artist clearly expressed her creative feelings through her music. Nine out of eleven selections were her own compositions... this is an outstanding accomplishment and solo fingerstyle guitar at its very best. Vivid pictures come to mind in each selection. Everything from patriotism, hotdogs and baseball to wearing a smile, love and memories from life's past can be felt. There are also carousels, twinkly stars, Hawaiian sunrises, and provocative tango dancers. This CD is truly a keeper, one to be played and enjoyed many times over.
