ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Beggars second album Desert Flower is a rootsy acoustic tapestry, full of classic stories of life, love and loss. Three great singers - fifteen great songs!The first single from the album “The Banjo Song” went to number 1 on the December 2009 European CMA chart.

Country and Folk has won a huge number of followers in Europe but only rarely do we find a small acoustic band, with a great natural country-campfire feeling like "The Beggars." The songs ignite immediately and not just because of the wonderful, crystal clear and authentic voice of Roots style singer- Renee. For a comparison I have to think of song writing greats such as Johnny Cash directly or Van Morrison. The sound basic structure consists mainly of acoustic guitars and a bass - with banjo, mandolin, violin and harp are subtly placed accents. musikreviews.de

Their second album, "Desert Flower", is once again finds the space between country and folk. While listening to the compact songs you immediately think of greats like Gram Parsons, VAN MORRISON, JOHNNY CASH, or the FAIRPORT CONVENTION. The crystal-clear voice Renee Dongheys sounds like a conglomeration of Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez and Linda Ronstadt. Quiet songs, great voices, harmonious melodies and excellent storytelling distinguishes "Desert Flower. The instrumentation is mostly acoustic guitars along with upright bass. Multi-instrumentalist Stuart Day is on top with mandolin, banjo, violin and harmonica . Rarely, are the songs longer than three minutes. Only the nearly six-minute phlegmatic "Carolina blows to this framework and is also the highlight of" Desert Flower ". venue.de/music/reviews

Powerful and vivid - they compare favorably with their U.S. counterparts and are better than much of what is currently being heard in the American country charts. www.track4.de

Very nice, finally something again from Australia! The focus of the Australians is quite clearly on the songs themselves, as there are no extended solo escapades. Also noticeable is approximately two thirds of the "Desert Flower" tracks do not even reach the three minute limit despite being unpretentious you can hear clearly we are dealing here with world-class musicians, The instrument diversity and use of all kinds, acoustic stringed instruments contributes immensely to the rich tone on this disc. At 5:41 minutes "Carolina", a haunting, melancholy ballad, is the longest track on "Desert Flower". And here there is a lonely desert feel; you sit tired before a crackling campfire, possessed by a paralyzing melancholy, in the great void, or the great expanse in the mind's eye. This is in a class of its own and makes this a truly great track. A class asset for country / folk-lovers! www.rocktimes.de
