Review by Clive Pownceby, Living Tradition
“Awash with personal-meaning-laden songs, light ‘n airy harmonies and arresting lyrics (“your heart will be your only guiding light, there are no simple maps to chart the way”) it also benefits from the weighty presences of Brian Bedford as producer, fiddler Tom McConville and the jazz-inflected guitar stylings of Howard Lees. There’s a sense of a quality cast rallying around something special. Covers include material by While/Matthews, Mark Nevin and Mary Chapin Carpenter though the majority of the songs are Bridget’s own. She sings and plays guitar with an easy character making for a soft-focus experience that favours languid over raw emotion but would commend itself to any late night Radio 2 programme director. Touching as Olive Tree is (it’s about a friend’s surprise birthday present for her husband and its significance) the highlight is probably Chase The Evening Sun where Howard’s guitar shines and the Guest/Wilcock vocal interplay is superb. This is an intelligent, sometimes dazzlingly good record. What better recommendation than that?”
