商品説明

About If Ever I Return (Celtic Songs of Love and Parting) 'Simply astonishing in it's beauty . . . she and the fabulous musicians who play with her have created an exquisite jewel of a Celtic album . . . Dover sings in English, Gaelic and French with equal panache, using the amazing instrument of her voice to tell the emotional stories behind the songs. Told from the heart, this truly is timeless music . . . I have been playing If Ever I Return quite frequently, and I can honestly say it's appeal only grows with repeated listenings.' - New Age Retailer 'Her voice rings like a crystal bell . . . she makes angels appear and dance in your mind. But while critics across the country have rhapsodized about her voice, what is often overlooked is her ability to write strikingly beautiful original music in traditional idioms (an ability overlooked probably because you would rarely guess that her original tunes aren't ageless folk melodies). . . I can't recommend this disc highly enough.' - Rick Anderson, Critics' Choice About Connie Dover 'Just occasionally, a voice arrives on the folk scene that is so pure, so beautiful, so magical, that it tells you: this is how to sing a song. Such a voice has Connie Dover.' - The Scotsman (Scotland's National Newspaper) Acclaimed by the Boston Globe as 'the finest folk ballad singer America has produced since Joan Baez,' Connie Dover is a singer, poet and Emmy Award-winning producer and composer. Her soaring, crystal-clear voice and inspired arrangements of traditional music of Scotland, Ireland and the American West display a depth and breadth of range that have earned her a rightful place among the world's finest traditional singers. Connie began her Celtic music career as a lead singer for the Kansas City-based Irish band, Scartaglen. She has toured extensively, performing on radio, television, and in concert throughout North and South America. Her broadcast performances include guest appearances on NPR's Weekend Edition, A Prairie Home Companion, Thistle and Shamrock, Mountain Stage and E-Town. Connie's solo CDs: Somebody, The Wishing Well, If Ever I Return and The Border of Heaven, have firmly established her reputation as a world-class vocalist, garnering rave reviews. Produced by Scottish music legend Phil Cunningham, her recordings feature instrumentation by some of Scotland, Ireland and America's finest traditional musicians. She recently collaborated with The Kansas City Chamber Orchestra on a CD of traditional Christmas songs and carols, entitled 'The Holly and the Ivy', which will be released in 2008. Connie's work as a writer and composer has flourished alongside her performance career. She received a 2007 Emmy Award for her production of acoustic music for the KCPT public television production 'Bad Blood - The Border War that Triggered the Civil War'. Her original music earned a Grand Prize in the 2007 Yellowstone-Teton Song Contest, sponsored by The Western Folklife Center (Elko, Nevada), and she is a recipient of the Speakeasy Prize in Poetry, sponsored by the Loft, America's largest independent literary center. Her book of poems, 'Winter Count', was published in 2007 by Unholy Day Press. Connie has twice been a finalist for the AFIM Indie Award, and other accolades for her music include being named a Top Ten Folk Release by Tower Records Pulse! Magazine, a Winning Favourite Folk Release by The Scotsman, Scotland's National Newspaper, a Boston Globe Top Ten Folk Release, a nomination for Scotland's Living Tradition Award Album of the Year,and a Creative Achievement Award from Time Warner's Hollywood On-Line. She has been a finalist for two Native American Music Awards, and for two New Age Voice Music Awards for Best Vocalist and Best Celtic Release.
