Album Notes
This Album is Correctly Titled.

The swell over the past decade of what is by now called roots music in America has risen to include many different artists, some of whom have learned their songs well and some who have suddenly discovered that the songs they already learned quite well are now new again.
Rory certainly suits the latter category.
He grew up performing in a folk music environment and writes his own songs as a direct result; moreover, we have with the album: Roots, the perfect blend of traditional and original song, with both in a condition of sparkling moonlight that those who have seen the music of the day come and go live under. There is an enduring midnight path in these songs that Rory Modlinski walks with expertise, yes, but also with a natural stride with which few can keep pace.
