    Passionate singing and unpretentious instrumental work

    Every band faces the challenge of developing a unique sound and entertaining show that capitalize on the collective talents of all the band's members. That is Misty River's strength. Dana Abel, Chris Kokesh, Laura Quigley and Carol Harley are four women who all sing and play accordion, fiddle, bass, guitar and clawhammer banjo. They present highly-arranged songs that span the genres of traditional and contemporary folk, bluegrass, country and Celtic from such diverse songwriters as Marshall Wilborn, Alan O'Bryant, Kate Wolf, Bill Staines, Tim O'Brien, Carter Stanley, Lyle Lovett and Shawn Colvin. Thus, Misty River's music is best labelled "Americana," and they are part of the growing movement that correlates to an aesthetic style that exhibits honesty and a healthy respect for roots music influenced by other stylings. Misty River's "Live at the Backgate Stage" will serve to introduce and treat a larger audience to their rootsy new traditional sound. While Misty River has already accomplished a lot in their five years together, I believe that this album will be the springboard to further launch this professional band from the Northwest to the main musical highways of America. This album will also serve as a great remembrance for anyone who catches this hard-working band on their many travels. The recording quality of this 17-track live album is first rate, with good balance and mix. "Live at the Backgate Stage" successfully embodies the beautiful musical spirit of Misty River, although only one original (Dana Abel's "Misty River" is offered). There are some excellent songwriters in Misty River, and I would've liked to have seen a few more of their signature originals included. On a positive note, live albums capture a band's energy and spirit, but unfortunately they also include slightly annoying applause after each track. All in all, this album is a very pleasing aural experience. Misty River is carving a distinctive musical niche for themselves by offering entertaining shows characterized by passionate singing and unpretentious instrumental work. "Live at the Backgate Stage" is a lovely CD that brings Misty River's exuberance and spirit right to your own living room. (Joe Ross, staff writer, Bluegrass Now)
