Once in a great while a singer/songwriter comes along with both freshness and experience.

"Friends - Love of a Different Kind", challenges all comers to listen and commit to the music of this talented, contemporary minstrel.

To listen to this talented artist's most recent compositions is to travel to the borders of the heart. Brigitte Burke is embarked on an exciting journey and her music is our ticket to ride along.
