Grace Griffith collaborates with former Eva Cassidy producer/band members, Chris Biondo and Lenny Williams, to create a collection of stunning ballads. Grace's unique interpretations feature her award-winning Celtic/folk sensibility punctuated with a mid-60's Brazilian jazz flavor. The result is a superb sophisticated album that should set a new standard for today's female vocalists.

MinstrelSong

CD: G2-10068
$12.99

Produced by grammy nominee, Marcy Marxer. Featuring Grace's unique interpretations of great songs by great writers set in arrangements ranging from sparse guitar and cello accompaniment to lush productions.

Grace Griffith's album, MinstrelSong, brings to mind recent recordings by Nanci Griffith and Lyle Lovett, in which the singers get a chance to interpret a collection of hand-picked songs. It doesn't take long, though, before it becomes clear that Griffith's MinstrelSong has a beauty and logic of its own.

A mixture of traditional and contemporary material, the album, says Griffith, is meant to honor "the role that singers have played in society throughout time." Nothing here underscores that premise better than "The Minstrel", Graham Pratt's sweeping, narrative ballad and a vivid reminder of Griffith's folk roots. For the most part, though, the tone of the album is more intimately compelling, thanks in part to Griffith's inspired performances of tunes composed by Iris Dement ("My Life"), Jane Siberry ("Bound By The Beauty"), John Martyn ("May You Never") and Richard Farina ("Swallow Song").

Of course, even if MinstrelSong were stripped of its thematic premise and flattering arrangements, Griffith's marveous voice would provide these songs with a unifying grace and allure. - Mike Joyce, Washington Post.
