Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ANNIE & ROD CAPPS

My Blue Garden

2009-08-14

Regional musicians (they're from Chelsea) Annie and Rod Capps deliver a set of "small town" American folk music, accentuated by Annie's high soprano and a familiar supporting cast made up of Rachael Davis, Jen Sygit, Jan Krist, Jim Alfredson (Organissimo) and others. While I appreciated their homespun originals, it is the two cover tunes that caught my attention -- Dave Carter's "Crocodile Man" and the gospel number "Soon Be Free." Folk music is alive and well in the hearts, voices and fingers of this couple. 08/09 Michael J. F-Traditional REGIONAL
