MAURA O’CONNELL —NAKED (Sugar Hill)

www.mauraoconnell.com

www.sugarhillrecords.com



Co. Clare diva, Maura O’Connell is arguably the finest female vocalist Ireland has ever produced —although fans of Dolores Keane may well dispute this. However, we had best keep that argument for another day it could go on for hours, days even.

Naked gives the pure toned O’Connell, a singer period, the opportunity to express herself without the distraction of players, and document some of the material she has been attracted to… Continue

LEVON HELM —ELECTRIC DIRT (Vanguard)

www.LevonHelm.com

As a follow-up to his acclaimed album, Dirt Farmer recorded as Helm’s own studio ((The Barn) of the Band has done it again, made a true blue roots music record. His vocals are stronger than ever, and with his music fitting the Americana tag as if it were made for him he hits the road with a potent brand of gritty, funky fashioned country, blues, gospel and rock.

Electric Dirt is extension of Dirt Farmer… Continue

SAM BAKER —COTTON (Music Road Records)

www.sambakermusic.com

Singer-songwriter Sam Baker has a tale or two to tell, and with Cotton the third album of a trilogy it has Baker more than at any other time though still spare and intimate, broaden his sound.

Apart from playing guitar left handed after losing use in his fingers he adapted to performing the other way round, and though restricted like his scratchy vocals compliment his spare style of writing. That often as not are like prose set to music. Stories, that like subtle… Continue

BAP KENNEDY —HOWL ON (Lonely Street Discs)

It is forty years since man walked on the moon and longer since JFK was the American president, and like in his song ‘Cold War Country Blues’ took the music of Hank Williams to the moon! Kennedy has always impressed me, right from when he was the lead singer (and songwriter) in Energy Orchard and then when turning solo. That saw him under the guidance of producers Steve Earle and Ray Kennedy and Nashville pickers debut with the fabulous Domestic Blues. A bunch of them had played on Earle’s… Continue

CATHERINE MacLELLAN —WATER IN THE GROUND (True North)

www.catherinemaclellan.com

www.truenorthrecords.com

When it comes to extraordinary talent, it pumps through the veins of Canadian singer-songwriter Catherine MacLellan like a piston of stoked-up steam train. She is good al-right, and, with Water In The Ground joined by her debut record Dark Dream Midnight previously only available mail order as a bonus disc you just can’t go wrong. For it alone is well worth the asking price!

With a voice smooth as silk, and lyrics like poetry… Continue

www.rounder.com

Top bluegrass act, Rhonda Vincent isn‘t only a terrific mandolin picker and vocalist, but a bandleader. Such is the wealth of talent on offer in her band, The Rage they take bluegrass music to another level a remarkable feat when taking into consideration the pickers that there has been and, still doing the business. On scouring not only bluegrass writers for material but reaching back in time for the old country standard ‘Stop The World And Let… Continue
