GUEST,David Review: Time and Tide, Barbara Dickson (17) RE: Review: Time and Tide, Barbara Dickson 31 Jan 08

This is a really stunning album - Barbara Dickson at her very best. I think 'Dream Angus' is the highlight for me but 'The Lowlands of Holland' 'Rigs o Rye' and 'Witch of the Westmerlands' are fantastic. The voice is cool and mellow and Troy Donockleys production compliments it perfectly.

Fantastic to see Barbara buzzing with creativity. She sings traditional music with such glorious empathy and passion and she does more than most to use her mainstream appeal to promote folk music. Her concert sets of the past few years have been mainly folk music - and her audiences seem to love it. She has a concert DVD - Into the Light - out soon featuring tracks from Time and Tide and the previous offering, Full Circle. As ever she's supported by some really fine players including Troy Doncockley and Peter Zorn.
