Fiona Mackenzie - Elevate - Karine Polwart

This is a gorgeous, delicate album. Like sailing out onto the Atlantic in a singing Northerly breeze in a wee ship made of shells! Fiona has immaculate and distinctive phrasing and gracing and the accompaniments are stark and spare and elegant. Beautiful stuff.
