Eva C

In almost 7 years of having this blog, I find that I have never mentioned the late singer Eva Cassidy. In that I don’t write much about music generally and have included song links a few times at most, it isn’t so strange. Still, this particular omission cannot stand. If I share one musical artist with you, one you may not have heard and who I find riveting, it needs to be her. Listening to Eva is like a gift. You can google her name to find much more information and lots of other music so I will skip any of those details. Eva Cassidy Over the Rainbow

      I wondered if she’d be your style Tim. I wasn’t sure. I’m certain her early death affects how we think about her but interestingly some of her friends in the best known biography say that she wouldn’t have liked fame – and one even suggested she accomplished what she came to do and left. Much to consider!

    I love Eva Cassidy’s voice, and first heard her on some sort of a compilation CD, later looking for more of her work. I knew nothing about her story at the time, which is so sad, of course. My favorite song of hers is “Songbird.”

      Becky, I knew you’d like her. I think it’s good in a way, that people generally hear her & respond without knowing more details, which is probably how it usually happens. I’m impressed how much of her music is available, considering.

      I’m so glad you like her. I figured if I found even one person to introduce her to it’d be worth a post. Because she’s gone it kind makes everything that exists of her more treasured.

      Glad to remind you. She does have an other-worldly quality to her voice. You are the second person to mention Fields of Gold; it is sublime. My gut-wrencher is the lesser known Tall Trees in Georgia.

    Wow. Her music is beautiful. She’s enormously talented. I love acoustic guitar and female vocalists. I’m a big fan of Kate Wolf. I sing and play many of her songs on my blog. Thanks for introducing me to this woman’s music.
