Laura Gibson "Six White Horses" (2008)
There's something about relaxed versions of traditional songs that really appeals to me. Perhaps it's that I feel like the music has in a way returned to its source, just good songs sung by and for people. The enjoyment of the song itself then takes precedence over technique, or perfection.
This is a loose collection of traditional songs originally recorded to be sold at merch tables. It has that loose feeling, that you are hearing musicians play just for the joy of playing. Highly recommended.
