ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The 2003 release of "This Gentlest Country" by Maritime folk/roots artist Rob Currie was hailed by critics as a major event on the Maritime music scene. The poetic and soulful mixed with the raucous sounds of pub nights. Stories, legends, ballads and contemporary commentary. Guest appearances by prominent celtic players Darren McMullen, Anthony Rissesco, Dave MacIsaac, Jennifer Wyatt, Richard Wood, Gordie MacDonald and Kevin Evans. A new kind of celtic soul.

“Fantastic!”

-- Gary Mittelholtz, Host of CBC Radio’s “Mainstreet,” Saint
John, NB



“Currie’s tenor lifts the graceful poetry of the lyrics, cementing his place as one of Atlantic Canada’s finest singer-songwriters.”

-- David Gauvin, Times & Transcript



“Very impressive…. Perhaps his greatest strength is his ability to write in a traditional style. … A very promising debut from a writer who has captured the essence of the traditional folk songs of his heritage with this collection whilst stamping them firmly with his own identity.”

-- Penguin Eggs Magazine



“A rich and romantic storyteller…[who] approaches it with a reverence for the music.”

-- Sandy MacDonald, Daily News





“[S]uperb… This is one of those rare albums for which there are not enough superlatives. The music is riveting, beautifully eloquent yet simplistic, and it powerfully evokes the moods of the lyrics…. Rob’s songwriting has echoes of the same rare genius in phrasing that made Stan Rogers’ songs so unforgettable.”

-- Gerry Taylor, Telegraph Journal


“Currie takes traditional folk motifs and makes them utterly real and current without diluting either the genre or the song’s current appeal… In every case Currie displays the perfect voice and instrumental savvy for the material… The originals – both timeless and contemporary – are what make this album and this vastly-talented man so unique and special.”

-- Wilfrid Langmaid, Daily Gleaner
