We feature three new albums on tonight's Folk Show.
Rich McMahon wrote every one of the twelve songs on his new album, Songs Of Exile, Love & Dissent, scheduled for release on 9 March 2015. Whether the song is a lament, a cautionary tale, a story of love or a realization of beauty, the listener is drawn in by the melodies and rhythm and is entranced by Rich's rich vocals.
Dan Walsh combines his delightfully adept banjo playing and refreshing story telling on Incidents and Accidents, his second album with a release date of 16 March 2015. Dan's music passions exemplified in the album include Scottish and Irish jigs and reels, as well as Indian classical music. Oh, and there are great bluegrass sounds as well.
The new album from Kyle Carey is North Star, and is a blend of Celtic and American influences which Kyle herself dubs 'Americelta' by coining that word for the record label. The album includes a Gaelic translation of Alison Krauss's Down To The River To Pray, an apt example of the merging of traditions. Recorded in Glasgow and mastered in Philadelphia, North Star is a must-have album from a must-hear singer. Release date 1 March 2015.
