Wow! The song "Requiem" that NPR sampled in an interview with Gilkyson had me weeping in the sink. Gilkyson and her daughter have such complimentary voices that this song is something of heaven to listen to...besides, Gilkyson seems like someone you'd like to have coffee with because she's a singer and songwriter with stories to tell. I like her voice too, it has character and a roughness around the edges that I like. She has this cd, on which she sings a song with Shawn Colvin, and the another earlier cd "Land of Milk and Honey." I was just really happy to get a chance to hear a voice that was new to me and have it move me so thoroughly.
Okay, after having this cd for 2 years, it has grown on me even more. She's a delight and while I didn't like all the songs on the cd when I first heard it, I know them all by heart now, and dig this one!
