4.0 out of 5 stars An Unexpected Pleasure, 9 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Way Up On the Hill (MP3 Download)
The Internet is a wonderful thing. Without YouTube, this little gem of an album would have remained undiscovered.

A fusion of British folk and Appalachian Bluegrass, this is a winning collection of largely self-penned songs in contrasting moods and tempos. The musicianship is scintillating, and in Chole Overton the band is blessed with a singer with a fine voice.

The album opens brilliantly with the mesmerising title track, a beautiful song that showcases Chloe's shimmering vocals; in the days before downloading individual tracks became commonplace, this song alone would have merited buying the whole album. I absolutely love it! Strawberry Leaves is an uptempo Bluegrass tune, before the mood turns melancholy with the wistful Winter Rose. Trafalgar Road is a dazzling instrumental that leads nicely into another terrific up tempo number, No Return. Whiskey is the best of the country-style tracks. Jerusalem Tart is the second instrumental, no less dazzling than the first. The album concludes with a fabulous version of Angelina Baker.

I feel a little churlish for withholding a star, but I'm not keen on Welcome to the Family and Rockin' Chair Daddy. Minor quibbles aside, this album is certainly worth exploring.
