5.0 out of 5 stars Not all folk music is about dead fishermen, 20 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Heart Of My Own (Audio CD)
Some-one on a Led Zeppelin bootleg forum pointed me in the direction of Basia Bulat. Folky things are not generally my cup of tea (hence the tile of this review) but am won over by this. She has a lovely quirky ,unusual voice,with a sweet vibrato, vaguely in the same ball -park as Natalie Merchant, but a bit rougher and less whimsical.

This album is a wee gem . It gets off to a belter of a start in Go On (love the drumming on this one , her brother apparently) and some lovely fiddle.

The single Gold Rush keeps up the momentum . The only teeny criticism I have is that the acoustic version of Gold Rush on the "DUUMBO " Session on YouTube is even better , having dropped a slightly syrupy harmony part and it would have been nice to have that version as a bonus " track.

Gold Rush is followed by what for me is the stand out track , Heart of My own , which is one of those songs which, whilst being totally original at the same time has a character of timelessness and tradition.

For me these are the 3 strongest songs but it's all good and is happily free of the dead-hand of worthiness present in so much folk-music
