Sarah Morgan and Jeff Gillett
9 tracks 33 minutes 2012
All the tracks were recorded LIVE in front of an invited audience.
The intros and applause have been left off and the minimum of post production /editing have been done.This CD really gives you a flavour of an evening with Sarah and Jeff.
This is a coming together of two well known and respected performers on the folk scene. Sarah asked Jeff if he would play on a couple of songs that she wanted to record for a one-off CD-R as a birthday present. They got together and the couple of songs became many!
SARAH MORGAN is a member of acclaimed harmony trio Craig Morgan Robson. She is highly invoved with the community choir movement and is a sought after workshop leader. As soloist (unaccompanied or with English concertina), Sarah sings with warmth and conviction and has a rich repertoire of traditional and more recent songs.
JEFF GILLETT is principally known as a guitarist but also sings and plays mandolin, Appalachian dulcimer and English concertina. As a singer, Jeff's strength is his ability to get inside the song and perform it with feeling. As an accompanist, he is very aware of the singer's interpretation and sets out to support and enhance it, without imposing any rhythmic constraints (although he is perfectly capable of providing a solid rhythm when required to do so).
