Description

Round for the Company on CD

Chris Roe is a singer and instrumentalist in the Pacific Northwest with a strong interest in traditional song. With the collaboration of some well-chosen friends, she has pulled together a collection of songs, some from various time-honored traditions, some brand-new, and others somewhere in between. Interspersed throughout are a few simple settings of country dance tunes, soulful laments, and spirited marches, played on concertina, harp and button accordion, with guitar and hurdy-gurdy backup. The most contemporary parts of this album still tie in to the sorts of things that people have sung about for centuries: injustice, poetic justice, war, love, the changing of the seasons, and the pleasures of friendships. They speak about disappointed love (When I Was In My Prime), sub-atomic love (NaCl) and love in all the wrong places (Bad Boys and Privateers). They speak about the bounty of our earth and the personification of the grain-god (All Among the Barley), about the tenuous nature of life in this modern world (Smoke on the Wind), and about hope and faith when times are dark (Row On). A Round for the Company is an invitation to a celebration of the humanity we all hold in common.
