Album Notes
Largely known as a fine American singer-songwriter and excellent mandolinist, Karen Mal on this recording indulges her love of songs largely gleaned from the Irish and English tradition. Her voice is perfectly suited to the delicate Irish-influenced vocal decorations she executes so beautifully on this recording.
All the songs in this collection concern love-finding love, losing love, happy and sad endings. What makes Karen's interpretations special is her committment to the reality of her characters, and a respect for the dignity of human passions. Karen's crystalline voice, perfectly complemented by the brilliantly tasteful and understated accompaniments of Gabriel Donohue takes you back to an older, simpler, and more beautiful place.

Great CD!
Beautiful music for relaxing with a cappucino, driving in the car, reading a book - just having around the house. Her voice is beautiful and the musicians are extremely talented. The songs are blend of Celtic and folk that makes a nice combination. Great CD! A new favorite of mine.

This is one very fine album!
Karen is blessed with that most rare of musical gifts, a voice that is rich with character AND beauty! When she sings, Karen Mal gives you a glimpse of her inner most, gentle spirit while she pays homage to these lovely, long loved songs. Simply and beautifully arranged, joined by Joanie Madden (Cherish the Ladies) on irish flue and whistles and accompanied by Gabriel Donohue, Karen's choice of songs and her skills as a singer and player shine all through this album. This is one very fine album!
