Synopsis

Album Description
This is Julie Henigan's long-awaited first album, featuring traditional music and newly composed music in the traditional idiom from Ireland, the southern United States, and England. The songs are performed both unaccompanied and with guitar (tuned to DADGAD), five-string banjo, and Appalachian dulcimer, with instrumentals on guitar and banjo. The CD is notable for its understated, simple production--unusual in an era of studio effects and over-dubs--and its successful attempt to present traditional music in all its unadorned, direct beauty. The original instrumentals and song are seamlessly combined with the traditional material to create an album that unites creativity with continuity.
