to write a review


Catchy fiddle arrangements of new and traditional tunes performed by an obviously very talented musician/singer-songwriter. Amanda Shire's interesting, confident voice pulls it all together most enjoyably. I remember being impressed in a similar way years ago by a twenty year old Alison Krauss.


Being Brave
Just what I expected, in one word great!


Amanda Shires' skill on the fiddle is remarkable. Her voice is beautiful, rich and pure. She has a wonderful ability to convey and transfer emotions. It’s not unusual for Amanda’s music to recall joy, lost memories or tears.

Nice mix of instrumentals and songs from promising Texas talent
I LOVE listening to a good fiddler... that being said, all-instrumental albums don't usually do it for me (what can I say, I'm a word man at heart!) But this disc is captivating; a nice mix of instrumentals and some very nice original songs featuring Amanda's sensitive vocals. Personal favorites are There's Words (which, yes, has words), Ragtime Annie and a nice reading of the Road to Lisdonnvarna, right about the time it's going to be mostly Texas-flavored. Recording quality and performances are top-notch throughout. Quite nice!
