Wassails Waits & Carols for Christmas
A Christmas album for the ages! Kelly Kennedy is joined by some of the best Virginia musicians;( Bob Zentz, Dean Shostak, Rex Richardson and Jenny Edenborn to name a few,) to create a CD that transports you to a frosty morning on an English Christmas morning, or a cozy fireside in an Appalachian cabin. The music is a glorious blend of pure folk and classical sensibility, beautifully arranged, voiced and great fun to boot! Kelly Kennedy is a performer with a gorgeous voice, an engaging stage presence and a gift for interpretation whether in plays, or playing traditional or early music. An actress, musician and singer, and dancer, she performs in the historic area of Colonial Williamsburg, tours with Irish and American music groups, conducts workshops and Elderhostel programs, and appears in regional theater productions around the country. About Springfield Mountain: "...a gorgeous project. Rooted in Celtic songs of tragedy and driven throughout by beautifully spare arrangements, Kennedy has created a delightful CD for fans of these traditional songs and sounds. Kennedy's voice is crystal and her piano befittingly grand.." -Style Weekly "Singer Kelly Kennedy is the biggest find...she has a beautiful clear contralto voice and applies it to some of the loveliest melodies in the tradition." -Dirty Linen.
