    Are there any fans of singer-guitarist Mary McCaslin (1946- ) here? Largely based in California; unfortunately, she is has a disabling condition now. She is said by some to be a bridge between the folk revival of the late 1950's-1960's and later singer-songwriter developments. Not sure of that, but her early albums from the 1970's have been favorites of mine since discovering her 15 years ago. She wrote many songs that are on YT -- I especially like Prairie in the Sky and Young Westley. She also sang traditional ones and was no enemy of popular music, recording good versions of numbers by the Beatles and others. Violin and cello are often used in arrangements, and the French horn in Prairie in the Sky is inspired.

    I wasn't aware that she had written "Prairie in the Sky" which I knew from Tom Russell (Song of the West). I found her on Spotify and there's about 6 albums ranging from 1974-2006. From what I hear (just scratched the surface) she's someone I will enjoy.

    Thanks for mentioning her.

    And thank you for your message. In later life Mary McCaslin made something of a comeback by getting her recordings reissued and promoted in various collections and formats, and also covered by other artists. And it's a good thing, because it's brought her music to a younger generation as well as to us older ones who missed her the first time around.

    I received this set yesterday. This is the Verve Italy budget re-issue of the more expensive original box.

    Same music. It's just a no frills budget priced re-issue from Verve Italy. It's been out for a number of years but recently I've seen it for a cheaper price so I bought it. There's no photos, just an excerpted essay from Dave Gelly's book and track listings.

    Josh Turner's version of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" is the best I've heard.



    His performance of "Amazing Grace" from the same album is also fantastic.

    Finally, I'd like to recommend Gary Hoey's Neon Highway Blues. Most of the first half is just pure ear candy, and I had the rare reaction of wanting to hear the whole thing again before moving on to something else.

    The Light in the Piazza
    Adam Guettel



    The Light in the Piazza is a musical with a book by Craig Lucas and music and lyrics by Adam Guettel. Based on the 1960 novella by Elizabeth Spencer, the story is set in the 1950s and revolves around Margaret Johnson, a wealthy Southern woman, and Clara, her daughter, who is developmentally disabled due to a childhood accident. The two spend a summer together in Italy. When Clara falls in love with a young Italian man, Margaret is forced to reconsider not only Clara's future, but her own deep-seated hopes and regrets as well.

    The score breaks from the 21st century tradition of pop music on Broadway by moving into the territory of Neoromantic classical music and opera, with unexpected harmonic shifts and extended melodic structures, and is more heavily orchestrated than most Broadway scores. Many of the lyrics are in Italian or broken English, as many of the characters are fluent only in Italian. (Wikipedia)
