Monthly news summary of all the happenings and up and coming events in the Scottish Traditional Music scene.
"Summer of My Dreams" was originally recorded in 1995 for Jean's own record label and is - in her own words - "a collection of memories which range from those parts of my repertoire that I inhaled with the damp sea air in Fife as I grew up, through the material that reached me by radio and recordings in early years and on to the more recent acquisitions more deliberately and consciously acquired." Jean's version of 'Dumbarton's Drums' (track 14)was voted into the top five of the BBC Radio Scotland 'top traditional Scottish tracks of all time' competition in 2007.
Superb accompaniment by Alasdair Fraser on fiddle, Abby Newton on 'cello and Jacqueline Schwab on piano.

|Review:||Just when you think you've got this lady sussed out she goes and releases an album that knocks you sideways. Think Jean Redpath and many people think Burns. Or Burns with string quartets. Or Burns with piano. That's until you see her perform live and realise that she can sing anything and put a distinctive label on it.... http://www.folkmusic.net|
