If you like more acoustic folk music then you'll like the Poozies. They represent english,scottish and irish folk music, playing new as well as traditional pieces. The two scots, Mary MacMaster and Patsy Seddon, can carry you mentally across glens and braes with their lively interpretations of walking and skipping songs, no warbling Mary Sandeman here, just pure fiddle and harp. The english factor is well represented here by Mercury Prize nominated Kate Rusby in a charmingly lively way. Don't like accordian? neither do I , but Karen Tweed will change your mind with her twisting melodies and cheeky bass lines.

5.0 out of 5 stars infinitely beautiful 11 Jun 2002
Format:Audio CD
With two of the band's members, Karen Tweed and Patsy Seddon, teaching folk music at Newcastle and Glasgow Universities respectively, one might expect a rather 'academic' approach from this 'all-girl' band. Not at all-true the musicianship is technically brilliant but this is a record of feeling and intense beauty. For this listener, what really makes the Poozies special is the harp. Patsy Seddon and Mary Macmaster play gut, metal strung and the wonderful electro harp, which sounds like a kind of bass guitar at times. Their playing is just tremendous, anyone who saw them play in the Scottish 'supergroup' Clan Alba will vouch for that. On this record listen to Patsy's lovely singing and playing on 'Ma Plaid' that segues into Mary's brilliant 'Freya Dances'. Never liked the piano accordian? Well listen to the sublime way Karen plays the short tune 'Emma and Jamie's Wedding' that (virtually) closes the album. Kate Rusby (now more famous) sings well on a number of tracks, the highlight being Neptune, which has a fantastic arrangement. Poozies are a great group and this is a fine record. Catch them live if you can, those harps are just heavenly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poozies - Early Days 24 Nov 2010
By Lester
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an interesting early days insight into the Poozies with quite a different line up to the present one. Kate Rusby was a part of it then and her distinctive voice is clearly heard. Good value for money and well worth buying. Thank you Amazon for listing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars worthy of more than a mere five stars... 15 Jan 2002
By NotATameLion - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Just when I was thinking of tightening up my reviewing standards and not handing out as many five star reviews--along came "Infinite Blue" by the Poozies as a Christmas gift. How can I not give this one five stars?
There are four songs here that I would categorize as great: "Come All Ye Lonely Lovers," "Ma Plaid," "Sorrows Away," and "The Maid of Llanwellyn." These ladies did an excellent job of selecting, writing, arranging, playing, (and especially) singing this material.
I am in awe of them.
Kate Rusby in particular is outstanding. Her voice makes what would otherwise be a run of the mill song (Neptune) into a true thing of beauty. Likewise, I cannot get "The Maid of Llanwellyn" out of my head. She has a voice that will haunt you for days after hearing it.
I give "Infinite Blue" my highest recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The joys of playing. 8 Aug 1999
By D. Mok - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The addition of Kate Rusby to their lineup has proven invaluable for The Poozies. Ex-member Sally Barker (who left to raise a family), as heard on previous album Chantoozies, was a competent instrumentalist, but lacking the spark to ignite the potentially docile harps and accordions of Mary Macmaster, Karen Tweed and Patsy Seddon.
Rusby proved to be the catalyst, not only setting the Poozies vocal ensemble afire with the passion of her voice (listen to her achingly sweet backup vocals to the lovely, Seddon-sung "Ma Plaid"), but enhancing the joy and affection that had characterized The Poozies up to this point. And with this vital fourth member the others achieve their best -- listen to Mary Macmaster's absolutely gorgeous composition "Freya Dances", the excellent a cappella "Sorrows Away", the moody "Neptune" (Rusby's voice, as bright as it is, can often convey a devastatingly dark emotion), and the giddy swirl that is "Crooked Road to Dublin".
As much as I love Loreena McKennitt's shiny, slickly produced Celtic whirl, The Poozies have a warmth and a spontaneity that none can match. Defying categorization (one record store in New York actually put Infinite Blue into its Rock section), intimate and inviting, this is a band to be cherished.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sky is Raining Kisses 31 Oct 1999
By Richard M. Peabody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is simply one of the best cds I've heard in a decade. Sandy Denny and Nick Drake may be dead and gone but Kate Rusby and the Poozies crew are alive and the sky is showering them with kisses. Great cd. Do yourself a favor and check this one out.

5.0 out of 5 stars MOVE OVER, DIXIE CHICKS-- THESE LASSES REALLY ROCK! 9 May 2000
By Shlomo Pestcoe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album with some trepidation: I knew the work of vocalist Kate Rusby and accordionist Karen Tweed but how would their music gel with two harps? Well, to my surprise and immense delight, it not only works -- it rocks!
Here Mary MacMaster and Patsy Seddon play both nylon strung and metal strung traditional Scottish and Irish harps. Their technique and sound are incredible: no ethereal, shimmering, New Agey stuff here! When accompanying songs, they contribute intricate, syncopated, melodic passages over a thumping bass-line back beat, reminiscent of the way that West African griots play their koras (21 string harp-lutes) to accompany their own singing. On the instrumental tunes these ladies really go to town! Their harps fill the bill equally well as lead and accompanying instruments with their expert use of traditional melodic ornamentation, such as "rolls" and "cuts," and totally rockin' bass lines.
When it comes to the piano-accordion in British Isles trad music, very few folks play it better than Karen Tweed. Like most trad music devotees, I prefer the rowdy bounce of the button accordion to the staid "Stomach Steinway." However, Karen plays her instrument with the punch and drive of a "button box:" not surprising, considering that in her youth she took lessons from Irish button accordion master, John Whelan.
Last but not least, awarding-winning Kate Rusby leads the Poozies in some of the finest vocal arrangments I've ever heard of any musical genre. Check out their acappella "Sorrows Away" -- it'll warm your heart and send shivers down your spine!
I've already given away several copies of "Infinite Blue" as "Mother's Day" gifts. The recipients are unanimous in their ecstatic "k'veling" (Yiddish for gushing "cheek-pinching" praise).
Pop this one in your Shopping Cart right now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Celtic Supergroup (What is a Poozie?) 21 July 2001
By Gordon Danis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to a lot of ambient music lately, but I noticed that I've been suffering from TMS (Too Many Synthesizers). The perfect antidote is a Celtic gem like "Infinite Blue". Like the classic Coltrane Quartet or Blind Faith, "Infinite Blue" culls from the Cream of the crop; the wonderful Scottish harp duo Sileas, the accordianist Karen Tweed, and most significantly the singer Kate Rusby. For reference, you can ponder a comparison to June Tabor, Linda Thompson, or Sandy Denny, but Kate is sui generis (one of a kind). Hers is a voice that comes along maybe once or twice a generation.
Listen to her plea for environmental consciousness on the brooding "Neptune", or her lead acapella voice on "Sorrows Away". The CD opens on a high note, with "Come All Ye Lonely Lovers" sung by Mary McMaster of Sileas, and the CD continues through the aformentioned tunes, and a beautiful "Ma Plaid", with Kate's ghostly background vocals.
Along with Planxty's "The Well Below The Valley", the Silly Sisters CDs with Maddy Prior/June Tabor, "Sir John A Lot" by John Renbourn, Pentangle's "Cruel Sister", and anything by Luka Bloom, "Infinite Blue" stands front and center amongst the finest Celtic music to be found.
