CULBURNIE CUL115D Released 1999
Christine Kydd with Lorraine Jordan, a perfect context in which to hear Christine’s powerful performances. Dark Pearls is a very natural and creative musical combination highlighting songs from Christine’s solo repertoire. The songs are big ballads and songs from the Lowland Tradition, and a sprinkling are from contemporary writers in the old idiom. Christine’s singing combined with Lorraine’s sensitive and vibrant work is by turns energetic and fun, compelling and emotive. Cover artwork by Trude Blows.

"a beautiful recording, alternately chilling and cheery, well balanced, exquisitely sung and altogether enjoyable." LIVING TRADITION
