ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is my third album and is an album full of simple folk melodies, harmonies both more traditional and more contemporary, with a few folk rock tunes thrown in. The songs I write often find a place in the seasons, habitats and natural images in Norheastern United states, but they arent all about that. they are a mix of gratitude, love songs, observations and expressions that happen to have occurred to me over the past 3 years. Please take a listen, see my web site and I hope you enjoy some of what you find. I have heard that my music is reminiscent of an east coast Kate Wolf, but the newer stuff may be a bit more contemporary, sometimes. I guess I tend to tell stories and express feelings and ideas in some of the same way the female folkies of old did and still do. I certainly love that music myself. Occasionally the rock star wanna be pops out, but that's fun too.

Keith Gorgas

excellent album
From the first guitar strums of “Comin' Home to Me” to the closing yodels of “Great North Woods Cowboy”, Adirondack singer/songwriter Celia Evans'new CD “Hardwood” is a masterpiece of beauty and grace. There isn't a weak link among the 12 offerings included on the disk. Evans' songwriting is homy and engaging; lyrics touch on family, love, history, and the wonders of nature, specially the Adirondack waters and landscape. Her crystal clear voice, buoyed by exquisite harmonies, and solid backing musicianship make the album a “must listen” for anyone who enjoys heartfelt folk music.

Throughout the recording, the rhythm section of bassist George Viscome and Buzzy Rickard gently keep time, while guest artists like Roy Hurd, Jamie Savage, and a handful of others add interesting color to the various numbers. Particularly noteworthy are Daun Reuter's feather light mandolin line on the inquisitiveve “Eva”, and Georgie Rickard's soulful fiddle on the bittersweet “Hardwood”. “Mother's Son” paints a stirring portrait of young warrior heading back into combat- a tribute to the 10th Mountain Division from the view point of an observer who's a dove rather than a hawk. “Hard Habit To Break” and “Photographic Flair” display the artist's pop sensitivities, and Jamie Savage's guitar lines are simply snappy.

As a whole, “Hardwood” is collection of tasty chestnuts; a real treat for the listener, and would make a great stocking stuffer for the holidays. Here's hoping there more of the same coming from one of the real gems of the Adirondack folk music scene, Celia Evans.
