Thread Name: New CD: 'Paris' by Sharyn Dimmick
Subject: New CD: 'Paris' by Sharyn Dimmick
I am pleased to announce the release of my first CD. Featuring a number of San Francisco Bay Area musicians on concertina, banjo, guitar and harmony vocals, it contains my two most requested songs, "Wallflower Waltz" and "Morning Shanty," as well as my personal favorite, "Paris." The recording also includes traditional American songs, 19th century compositions and a few covers.

The track list, for your convenience:
  1. Paris (Sharyn Dimmick)
  2. Vandy, Vandy (Trad -- yes, I know about Bob Coltman's tune -- this is not it)
  3. No More Fish, No Fishermen (Shelley Posen)
  4. Big Yellow Taxi (Joni Mitchell)
  5. Morning Shanty (Sharyn Dimmick)
  6. Little Sadie (Trad)
  7. When You and I Were Young, Maggie
  8. Barbara Allen (Trad)
  9. Hard Times (Stephen Foster)
  10. The Wallflower Waltz (Sharyn Dimmick)
  11. The Hallelujah Trilogy:
    • We Sing Hallelujah (Richard Thompson)
    • The Battle Hymn of the Republic (Julia Ward Howe)
    • Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)
  12. Bringing in the Sheaves

The CD includes a full-color booklet with all the song lyrics and several original paintings, It is a beautiful package, if I do say so myself.

Watch for an upcoming review by another Mudcatter.

Feel free to PM me with any questions.

You can order them directly from me: send me an email at or PM me here. Eventually, they will also be available from CD Baby as well.
