Lonnie Martin - A Moving Hand
by John Williams
This is a fi ne CD.
I enjoyed it immensely.
If you like beautiful harmonies,
crystal clear voices and sensitive
treatment of songs then you will
enjoy this effort from Lonnie Martin.
Lonnie sings on all tracks and
also accompanies herself on guitar
on several tracks.
She has also been accompanied
by a number of talented singers and
musicians to create a special CD.
The CD opens with the traditional
‘Canaan’s Land’ and Lonnie’s voice
combines with Cloudstreet (John
Thompson and Nicole Murray
who arranged the song) to give a
memorable opening track.
‘Geraldine and Ruthie May’ is a
lovely track with the viola of Helen
Rowe, Rhys Owen’s guitar and Bec
Wright’s cello adding to its gorgeous
sound.
‘Sleepless Sailor’ and ‘Cobweb
of Dreams’ with Helen Rowe, Ros
Roche and Lonnie’s beautiful trio of
voices are two special tracks which
create a memorable sound.
One of my favorite tracks was
‘Black, Muddy River’.
Rhys Owen on guitar and Don
Jarmey on octave mandolin add a
great backing to this track.
Lonnie’s soulful voice gives this
song about being alone a special
poignancy.
‘Peg and Awl’ sees Lonnie and
Helen Rowe combining to create
another memorable song about
technology putting workers out of
business in the early 1800s.
Nothing much has changed in
two hundred years.
The next track ‘Dillard Chandler’
combines with the traditional ‘Li’l
Liza Jane’ played on fi ddle by Helen
Rowe and has a great chorus to
sing along to.
‘Lies’ is another fi ne track. Lonnie
is joined by Rhys Owen and Helen
Rowe on this thought provoking
track.
Rose Broe on accordion, John
Holmberg on banjo, Ryk Rostron
on guitar and mandolin and Michael
Tully on bass help to create a great
track with ‘So Say The Vikings’
which was arranged by Pirate
Brides.
‘I Can’t Stand Up Alone’ shows
Lonnie’s powerful voice to full effect.
On the track ‘Lifeline (Harriet
Tubman)’ Lonnie is joined by Don
Jarmey, guitar, Jamie Caulfi eld,
fi ddle, and Mat Keely, percussion,
in an arrangement by Jigger. This
memorable anti slavery song about
the ex slave Harriet Tubman and the
Underground Railway to freedom in
the North is my favorite track on the
CD.
I can recommend this CD. You
will enjoy it too, if you like beautiful
voices combined with talented
musicianship.
It is just so easy on the ears and
is a special listening experience.
