ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rachel Bay Jones takes eleven songs from the musical theatre repertoire and performs them in authentic acoustic folk/bluegrass settings. Her voice is the perfect vehicle for this evocative fusion: at times soaring, at times understated, always honest and pure.

"Rachel Bay Jones knows how to get to the heart of a song.
Her pure, emotional voice, supported by unique and fresh musical
arrangements by David Truskinoff and Bobby Baxmeyer, will make you want to
listen to this unique collection of songs again and again.
Her 'Streets of Dublin' is a revelation."
~Stephen Flaherty

Theatre lovers will be captivated by these heartfelt (100% acoustic) arrangements...and "folkies" will be amazed and delighted to find themselves listening to and loving these show tunes. Jones is backed up by world class musicians who have played with the very best in both the Folk and Musical Theatre worlds. The list of songs contains some older classics and some still being heard on Broadway today. The arrangements are for acoustic guitars, fiddle, mandolin, bouzouki, banjo, dobro, cello, upright bass and, of course, sublime vocals by Rachel Bay Jones.

No Day But Today
I bought this album alone for track 11, Another Day. I am a huge RENT fan and wish she could have recorded more from the musical. Beautiful.

Leslie Feagan

Great!
I worked with Rachel doing FIDDLER but never really got to experience her glorious range. Thank goodness she got to make this terrific CD and share her talent with the world.

Fantastic!
The arrangements on this album are stunning, and Rachel Jones has an amazing and expressive instrument. I've only had the album for a few days, and I've already listened to it five times--it's addictive. I highly recommend it!

ShowFolk is my favorite new album! I could listen to Rachel's soothing, whimsical voice all day. And the arrangements on these traditional musical theater songs are so cool!

Miles Price

Great album
Was turned on to this CD by a friend of mine, and I'm really glad I picked it up. Combines folk music and showtunes -- two genres that should be mashed together more often in my opinion. Beautiful arrangements and a lovely voice!
