Magic

Artist: Susan Hamlin

Label: Flood Wood Music

Genre: Celtic, Irish, Scottish, Traditional, World, American Folk, Singer Songwriter

 

 

"Magic" features gorgeous studio production with Susan's vocals, guitar and an all -star guest artists including 7 Nations founding 'piper Neil Anderson, John Kirk, Peter Davis and members of The McKrells. The four originals include the funny big-band "New Age Swing" co-written with former Bitchin Babe Camille West. A "Magical" collection of songs from traditional Irish Gaelic (Mise Raftery) to passionately sung arrangements of Bob Dylan's Tomorrow is a Long Time and Ralph McTell's classic anthem Streets of London make this CD one her fans say never leaves their changer.

 

One of the real talents in folk music today ... one of my favorite CDs in a rather eclectic collection. Susan's voice is haunting and true and the playing precise, yet heartfelt. Susan considers herself an 'unreconstructed folkie.' You don't need to be one to fall in love with this music -- Briefme.com
