A lot of blogging to catch up on as I return from yet another extended trip
The classic country lilt is somewhat misleading for this Long Island native. According to the site Allmusic, she was greatly influenced by folk-blues from her parents’ record collection. I first heard about (and heard) her at her electric live performance at the 2007 New Orleans Jazzfest, where her rendition of “Sweet Forgiveness” (which can be heard on the critically acclaimed album North American Ghost Music) set the crowd on fire. Please enjoy.
