The last Mary Gauthier (pronounce it Go-shay, folks!) album that I was familiar with was Filth and Fire, which was released ten full years ago. I think I veered away from her after that because her tendency toward melodramatic lyrics, and the all-stops-out production that went with that, didn’t seem to sit well with her life-in-the-raw subject matter.

Often drawing comparisons with Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan for his ability to write literate, poetic and thought-provoking songs,…Continue

This new album appears ahead of the intended follow-up, the material having intruded on the process of getting that one together. A period of disturbed nights and vivid dreams produced these atmospheric songs full of startling imagery – he…Continue

It’s been ten years since I first saw Jimmy LaFave perform live, it was at the Newport Folk Festival where he presented the ‘Ribbon of Highway, Endless Skyway’ tribute to Woody Guthrie as well as performing his own set on main stage – from that moment on I was smitten! His voice is so distinctive, full of plaintive timbres that never fail to move me.
