Rayna Gellert is probably best known as an Appalachian fiddler , but hopefully this album lets the world know that she’s also a great songwriter with a straightforward, deeply affecting voice. The songs borrow heavily from traditional music and they have the kind of deep, pulsing groove that only an old-time musician could create. The band (Gellert, Kai Welch, Jamie Dick, and co-producer Kieran Kane) is so tight, it’s difficult to hear where each instrument ends and the next one begins. The songs are wistful and meditative, but they’ve got a healthy dose of grit and movement, too. Earthy, warm, and addictively groovy, this album stood up to my repeated listening, usually with a cup of coffee on a chilly morning.
