New Album from Canadian Folk Roots Trio Following Three Award Winning Albums
Electric Ghost – UK
By Lee Edwards
All three band members Ruth Moody, Nicky Mehta, and Heather Masse contribute equally and play a variety of instruments; acoustic guitar, accordion, banjo, and ukulele.
The title track, Bright Morning Stars, is a traditional Appalachian hymn that they sing a capella to shimmering and etherial effect. Elsewhere they are joined by the cream of Canadian musicians including Bill Dillon, Kevin Breight, Colin Cripps, Richard Moody plus regular sideman Jeremy on fiddle.
The theme of what’s been lost, whether the passing loved ones, a lover gone or a family that is far away is emotionally touching.
A beautiful and haunting album, from the heart.
