Album Notes
Doris Williams has been singing since she was very young, and playing piano since 5 years old. She grew up around a very artistic family in Michigan, with her father practicing piano all day and her mother singing to her. The whole family would often gather around the piano and sing a variety of songs, from sacred to secular, broadway to popular. She also thrived on all the art and poetry her mother delved into. When a teenager she fell in love with early music while listening to the local radio stations. It captured her soul! So she went to the nearby university to major in vocal early music, then to Stanford University for a Master's in Early Music.
In college her parents presented her with a surprise birthday present - an eight course lute! While raising her son and teaching private lessons, her lute did not see the light of day, until the year 2002 when she decided to brush the dust off of it and start performing with it. Her lute is now an integral part of her everywhere she goes, whether it be a farmer's market, restaurant, or church hall.

Celtic and Beyond
"Your naturalness and ease helps others to open up, to be themselves. You walk out on stage without props and bare your soul with a single line of melody."

Steve Cavin

Celtic and Beyond
I've never heard a better collection of traditional Celtic vocals. Playful, lilting, lively. Doris' voice is clear and strong and soothing to the ear. A high class album I'll listen to over and over again.

Joni who?
I tried to listen to this puppy while I was driving home from the post office in my car. I never completed my journey. So compelling is Doris' music that I ended up pulling my car off the road and just sat there with my mind finally free to totally enjoy all that she does. I kid you not! I pity the fool who does not buy this recording.
