Pocketful of Rhymes is here!!
The new CD is here at last!
Here's what the release sheet has to say:
"Pocketful of Rhymes features thirteen songs - an eclectic mix that ranges from hard-hitting political anthems to hair-raising ancient ballads and love songs; from joyous songs of the Canadian wilderness to introspective meditations on the afterlife and the life of a songwriter. Ten of the songs are McGann originals, plus three from her extensive traditional repertoire.
Eileen is joined on this album by an array of brilliant musicians, including (co-producer) David K on harmony vocals, bass, bouzouki, mandolin and slide guitars, Pierre Schryer and Moritz Behm on fiddles, Kathy Stacey on cello, Martin Nolan on pipes and whistle, Allan Cameron on percussion, and more! "
