Sue West releases "Words Of a Friend" - traditional folk music

I have just released a new album, "Words Of a Friend." It features myself on guitar and vocals, Dakota Dave Hull on baritone guitar, Dan Newton on accordion, Kenny Jackson on fiddle, along with upright bass by Sandra Kay Njoes, banjo by Adam Kiesling, and low whistle by Laura MacKenzie.

Dakota Dave's baritone playing is of interest on this album....he plays baritone on all ensemble tracks, and it became a bit of a challenge to him, to keep finding new things to do with the baritone for these varying songs.

The cd includes waltzes, a polka, my flatpicking and fingerstyle, ballad singing, traditionals, originals, and even two Great Lakes Maritime ballads.

This album can be acquired by sending $16 to Sue West, PO Box 146, Spring Valley, WI 54767. By early April it will be available through CDBaby, etc.



 The release was celebrated at my church on St. Patrick's Day, in rural River Falls, WI.  With accompaniment for the songs including these two gentleman, it was a wonderful day and a great launch for my 7th album project, this one recorded at Dakota Dave's Arabica Studio.

Bob Mesher replied to Bob Cron's discussion Norman's Preferences
"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "
