Subject: RE: new cd - Cindy Kallet
Whoooo-eeee! Cindy Kallet's new cd is out??!! That's fabulous news. She is one of my all-time favorites. Have you heard the two trio albums she did with Ellen Epstein & Michael Cicone? Those are fine listening, too. Michael told me last spring that they were going tostart work on another one once Cindy's new solo cd was out. Something else to look forward to!

Brief pause for jubilation . . .

Shallow Brown has been recorded by June Tabor, on what I think is her most recent cd, has been out 2 or 3 years, called Aleyn. The liner notes give some information about the song--unfortunately I don't have them here at work, but I think I remember that it's from the African-American Gullah culture of the South Carolina or Georgia Sea Islands.

Wish I could tell you more, but that's all I know without consulting the source. It's a gorgeous song, and of course June Tabor's version of it is stunning. I can hardly wait to hear Cindy Kallet sing it.
