Overview

Winter Marquee

Her first live album since 1988’s magical, acclaimed One Fair Summer Evening, Nanci Griffith’s Winter Marquee shines like a bright night beacon, brilliantly showcasing a career-spanning array of her own memorable story-songs, favorite covers, and new tracks. The sound is classic country-folk, with superb assists by Griffith's longtime band, the Blue Moon Orchestra, and special guest vocalists Emmylou Harris and Tom Russell. Griffith’s sweet, twangy-timbred soprano flows rich and clear with seasoned, seamless ease on songs about life on the run and on the road -- whether wandering lovers, long-lost loves, or just plain wanderlust -- in all its many-colored splendor. Highlights include inspired renditions of John Prine’s "Speed of the Sound of Loneliness," Bob Dylan’s beautifully moving "Boots of Spanish Leather," and Griffith’s own indelible signatures "There’s a Light Beyond These Woods (Mary Margaret)," "Gulf Coast Highway," "The Flyer," "I’m Not Drivin’ These Wheels (Bring the Prose to the Wheel)", and "Listen to the Radio," as well as Julie Gold’s "Good Night, New York," the CD’s first single, which Griffith performed on David Letterman’s commemorative 9/11 Late Night show.--Janie Matthews
