Paul Kamm & Eleanore MacDonald 'From The Fire' Freewheel

A folk music duo who have spent a lot of time playing together and have during that time perfected their vocal harmonies and interaction. Their latest album, their ninth, highlights their voices and songs. All written by the duo other than Ship Gonna Sail where Kamm has taken words for the renowned Utah Phillips and set them to music. Indeed the title track is dedicated to Phillips. The duo have produced this album with Tom Menig and have brought in a selection of like minded players to fill out their largely acoustic sound. To Let The Light In features Mark McCartney's strong drum pattern and Larry Tracey's pedal steel to add some texture to this songs which is for those who give their time to care for the less fortunate. Throughout the songs have a sense of perception and understanding that shows a maturity that comes both from playing together and from an affinity with those they have encountered on their travels. That they deliver these songs with equal skill is somethimg that is apparent. This is folk music with heart and no little dexterity on Kamm part as a guitarist. This album will appeal to many who like modern folk music in general and songs with some openess and heart. From The Fire burns quietly but will warm those who get close to it.
