I too can recommend this CD ,at last I have managed to sit down and listen to it,with a number of personal problems to sort out.
I have followed Julie and Gavin's progress almost from the time they got together and this CD gave me no surprises as I have heard almost all the songs performed live.
Julie has an immaculate voice with clear vocals that are easy to listen to and of course join in with.I cannot stop whistling ,or singing some of these tunes long after I turn off the CD. Some of my favourites include "Sentimental journey,Georgia,Aint Misbehaving,Two sleepy people and the list goes on.Certainly a walk down memory lane.
Gavin accompanies Julie on his Jeffries Duet (not the easiest of instruments) and melodion.He is a superb musician and has a very unusual staccato style of accompaniment.He is almost playing the duet like an anglo,which does not surprise me as many anglo players try to emulate the duet and english and duet and english players players the anglo.
Julie is new to Folk music ,but I look forward to her dipping her toes into the Folk scene and certainly a future folk song CD from Julie I very much look forward to.
Well done for this CD.
