I discovered Scottish musician Karine Polwart last year thanks to Pandora and immediately downloaded her album. Now she is out with some new stuff. Her lyrics are decadent and it is so easy to escape into the stories she tells so eloquently, and perfectly paired with flawless guitar picking to boot.
She's up there on my virtual shelf alongside Kate Rusby. Great company!
If you are a Celtic/Folk fan (like me) go check her out. You won't be disappointed.
