Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

SALLY BARRIS

Restless Soul

2008-03-14

Sally Barris has been known more as a writer for other singers, mostly country (e.g. Martina McBride, Trisha Yearwood, Lee Ann Womack), but this is her third CD and the one poised to give her the attention, thanks to a marriage of her country style with a Celtic flair. The merger of these approaches on a number of these songs inches her closer to Alison Krauss, with a little Kate Rusby thrown in for good measure. The country-Celtic mix is heard on the best of this set, on songs like "Huntington River" (#2), "My Love Loves the Ocean" (#3) and "Tears of Joy" (#11). Stuart Duncan's fiddle is the key ingredient in all three. 03/08 MJVD F-Alt Country
