ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
These songs on my first album have been with me for a long time, some of them since childhood. The soundtrack of my life has been formed by a mixture of hymns, carols, traditional ballads and songs by known writers, contemporary and not. I have written a handful of songs myself and include three of them here, including my most popular song, "The Wallflower Waltz" and the contemporary sea shanty, "Morning Shanty."

I favor a spare style of accompaniment, except when I desire full vocal harmony. You will find a capella tracks ("Morning Shanty," "Little Sadie, "Barbara Allen"), a Joni Mitchell track with banjo and guitar, a waltz with guitar and fiddle, guitar and concertina on the title track. I wanted the album to sound like I sound when I sing, rather than employing a lot of fancy tricks.

A Rich Mix of Folk Sounds
There aren't many folk albums that feature such a wide range of material as this one while also creating a very cohesive mood. From songs written by Ms. Dimmick, to covers by great songwriters such as Richard Thompson and Leonard Cohen (not to mention Stephen Foster), to traditional ballads and even a hymn, the album keeps you interested at every turn. Ms. Dimmick's voice, at times reminiscent of Joan Baez, can be haunting or sweet as needed. I particularly enjoyed the self-penned "The Wallflower Waltz" as well as ballads such as "Vandy, Vandy," "Little Sadie" and Barbara Allen," but there's a lot to like here.

Buy this CD it's great
i often listen to this cd when i'm driving through the rio grande gorge from taos to santa fe. i love sharyn's voice and the variety of folk music. it feels real; it's reaching back to live roots. but i also adore her original song wallflower waltz and medley of three songs with cohen's mixed in and hard times come again no more. what can i say? i like the whole thing. also the painting illustrations are charming. can't wait for dimmick's next. i've bought this one for friends.
