An important factor in the appreciation of music, especially live, is an understanding and appropriate venue. The Bronte Music Club is one such venue it is situated in Rathfriland in Northern Ireland and with Andy Peters' Frontier Promotions brings a variety of Americana and roots artists to play there. Funding for such a venture is always difficult and no more so than in these financially restrictive times. In that light Peters asked many of the artists if they would contribute a track to this CD the profits of which will help to keep the venue in action. This 21 track double CD compilation is reflective of his and the Bronte Music Club's choice of artists. As with any such collection each listener will have his own favourite artists and tracks. The range of choices includes Lynn Miles, Kimmie Rhodes, Madison Violet, Kevin Welch, Ian Matthews, I See Hawks In LA and The Believers. It is a good way to introduce yourself to some artist you may not have heard before as well as to remind yourself of the power of this largely intimate music. The album is available from brontemusicclub.com and by buying this and attending the venue itself you help keep the music that is so necessary at all times alive.
