ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Folk songs have been part of my life ever since I can remember. Some of my earliest recollections are singing songs about the moon, the rain, breakfast, and going to bed. For me, music has a unique ability to transform ordinary things into special things - the mundane into the extraordinary.

This song cycle is all about exploring that further. Each song roughly represents an hour of the day. The CD begins at dawn and ends at dusk. As we travel through the day, we learn to perceive familiar objects and situations in a new light, infusing joy and mystery into the everyday experience. The poetry I set to music is written by Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, Eugene Field, Robert Louis Stevenson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Shakespeare.

If I had to describe the style of music, I would say it is somewhat of a blend of Scottish folk music with renaissance music of France, Germany, and Spain. There are ten tracks total on this album. I recorded on the fiddle, mandolin, keyboard, and I sing. My husband recorded the percussion and guitar.
