Shes won top awards from the Wildflower Arts and Music Festival in Texas, the Tucson Folk Festival and the Portland Songwriters Association and has also been a three time New Folk Finalist at Kerrville, emerging artist at Falcon Ridge and a finalist at the Sisters Folk Festival.

The title song is a beautiful tribute to her friend, mentor and collaborator, the late Fred Alley. Dark Eyed Sailor was next, a collection of traditional Celtic songs.

Marc Utter Photos

From the heart of a century old barn on the blackland prarie just east of Austin, comes a sound that, while unmistakably Texan, might be heard on the plains of some distant land across the ocean. Gypsy rhythms and slide guitar, banjo and snake charmer blend beautifully as Marc Utter's new band grooves his tales of desprate lovers, destiny, guns and angels. Waltzing from rock to reggae to latin beat, the Blackland flavors it's music with Texeclectic spice.Marc was a member of the legendary Sharecroppers, Austin's groundbreaking bluegrass rockers. Their '97 release, spirit of the sharecroppers, is a classic Americana recording. He continued to play in Nathan hamilton's band, recording and supporting his critically acclaimed debut solo album, Tuscola. He also formed the group Hundred Year Flood with fellow Sharecroppers, Bill and Jim Palmer and songbird Felicia Ford, whose 2000 self titled album was an international hit.Read more about Marc here.
