In this Side By Side CD, Diane Michaels and Carmen Lasceski of Green Valley Music have put together 15 of their favorite songs for listeners of all ages. This is a truly eclectic selection of music from traditional folk and Irish songs, standards, children’s songs, a calypso lullaby, classic country, jazz, and a Broadway number to an African song of farewell. Diane and Carmen accompany their vocal tracks with guitar, folk harp, violin, banjo, mountain dulcimer, steel pan, Irish Whistle, and much more. Once upon a time, a mother and daughter started out on a journey together. They never realized how many places it would take them, how many songs they would share, or how many people they would share them with. This CD is a collection of songs they have played together. This diary of their musical journey together features some of their favorite songs. One of the songs on the CD is written by Diane, and received honorable mention in the John Lennon Song Writing Contest, in 2000.
Expect the unexpected with this collection of music for the whole family. We wish you happy listening!
