Come Lasses and Lads, Lords and Ladies!
Join acclaimed young singer Michael Bannett on a magical journey through time as he regales you with songs of the British Isles. Experience the Scotland of Robert Burns, the England of Shakespeare, the lovely countryside of Ireland and Wales. Hear timeless melodies from the 17th to the early 20th centuries masterfully arranged by Quilter, Liddell, Hughes, and others. All aboard!
Already a veteran of musical theater, recording, and national television, Michael follows up his international award-winning "Beautiful Soup" CD with this second solo recording. (See MichaelBannett.com for complete discography.) Accompanying Michael here are superb musicians playing piano, acoustic guitar, 19th-century flute, viola da gamba, and other period instruments including baroque types of flute, piccolo, violin, viola, and cello.
"... true artist's instincts and an unusually mature vocal sensitivity.... a "must have" recording for fans of things Celtic"
