Grace Griffith is the Vocalist/Guitarist who is one half of the team that forms the nucleus of the East Coast Celtic group "Connemara". This is her first solo release (actually a re-package of "Every Hue and Shade", minus a few tracks and also adding a few tracks), and it is a package of very soothing, beautiful heartfelt folk music. Although in "Connemara" Grace strickly performs Celtic Music, in "Grace" she expands her horizons to not only include Celtic, but also American folk and even the famous Gershwin showtune from "Porgy and Bess", "Summertime". Grace is joined by a number of impressive musicians including past and present members of "Connemara", Martin Simpson on the very `Country` feeling "When My Ship Comes In", Celtic percussionist Myron Bretholtz, Zan McLeod, and guitarist Al Petteway. There is a very jazzy feel to the impressive "Hold me Forever", with some really great sax playing by Bob Read. Most of this album ventures into the Celtic territory that Grace really shines in and the album opens with the thought provoking "Water, Fire and Smoke", which asks us to remember Mother Earth, and the Ancient Celtic religion. Next is "Star of the County Down" (Nice to hear the vocals, as most versions today are instrumental), then a great version of Dougie Maclean's "Turning Away". The most mystic Celtic experience comes with "The Quiet Land of Erin", followed by a musical version of the W.B.Yeats poem "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" here performed with beautiful interactions between Griffith and guitarist Petteway.Read more ›

I bought this album after hearing a Grace Griffith recording of "Demeter's Daughter" at an Easter Sunrise service and then hearing her live at a Celtic service at our (Unitarian) Church. I was pleasantly surprised by the range of music styles, not just Celtic, but some very sweet pop and folk type tunes as well. The key to it all is her sweet, sweet voice; I told my wife I would never be tempted by another woman's appearance, but a voice like Grace Griffiths could create problems, and explains the roots of the myth of the sirens. Her voice and her song selections remind me of early Joan Baez or Judy Collins, and the production on this album is superb. My car has a killer sound system, and I often use track 2 (Hold Me Forever) as a demo for freinds, due to the clarity of Grace's voice and the way in which the instrumentation on this song is allowed to stand on it's own, alternating with the vocals so that each enhances the other, evoking the desired mood with tremendous emotion. Anyone who likes crisp lyrics sung without a lot of ostentatious warbling or theatrics will enjoy her music; those who appreciate the emotions and music of Ireland will especially like the way in which she brings that music to life without sounding trite or depressing.

Grace's voice is itself all the music needed to put a listener in another dimension. The guitar, fidddle or mandolin, which may accompany her on occasion, are redundant. Her range is absolutely mind-boggling; just when you think she has reached a point where she'll have to back down from a building glory, she exceeds it and carries you further than you ever thought possible. Grace has performed in the company of several fine artists, some better known and more widely celebrated. But, none of those can fill your heart with such a wonderful feeling of joy and well-being as does Grace. She deserves to receive acclaim far beyond these sincere words of support. In person, she is just like her music, sincere, unaffected and beautiful. An eagerly anticipated new CD in the Springtime is fitting for this wonderful, emerging talent. Thank you Grace!!

You will not be able to get enough of her music or her voice. I have played this CD more times than I can count. I have passed it along to friends who have had to purchase their own copies. Grace's voice is reminiscent of Judy Collins in her folk days...strong, honest, clear. Her choice of music is varied and exciting. Grace is a singular talent and I hope she records again soon.
