Lucy Kaplansky – This Morning I Am Born Again
This Woody Guthrie remake of This Morning I Am Born Again from Lucy Kaplansky’s 2012 long-player, Reunion, is a great example of Lucy’s folk-blues side. She has many musical sides, all of which are cohesive and blend perfectly together. Whether she is singing in a light Jazz vocal about Pi, or rehashing folk standards, Lucy’s voice pops seamlessly from track to track. Certainly some of these tunes could be classified as country, but they are minus the annoying (in my opinion) over use of twang. That is a good thing.
I’m featuring this video now, because Lucy Kaplansky and Richard Shindell, who was one of several core musicians who helped with the making of the long-player Reunion, have teamed up to create an album of cover songs as The Pine Hill Project. Their Kickstarter campaign has reached their initial goal, so barring a catastrophe, the album will be released. This album should feature tight harmonies from these two top-notch artists.
