Ready for the Storm
'Eclectic' is a word much over-used in folk music, but how else to describe an album that includes centuries-old Gaelic as well as selections by Stan Rogers, Dido and Kate Bush? Nearly every song on this album deals with a journey, whether from across the sea or back from the grave, each song is about choice and living with the consequences. Though it has been nearly eight years since the Browne Sisters and George Cavanaugh recorded their last studio album, the astonishing variety of songs collected here, the inventive arrangements, the strength and clarity of the vocals guarantee that their journey has not been wasted - and that their choices are sure to please. The sister group, along with cousin George and longtime friend John Allan are favorites at many music festivals across the United States and have played together for over 15 years. They have opened for the likes of Andy M. Stewart and shared the stage with Dougie MacLean, Alex Beaton, and Alasdair Fraser to name just a few. They are known for their creative and unusual harmonies and arrangements and can make folk lovers out of those who didn't know they could love folk music!
