Comments:

A supergroup of women with their own strong folk and traditional folk singing careers. The album is mostly traditional songs with a cover of "Walking After Midnight" (originally covered by Patsy Cline) and "Why Don't You Do Right" (originally covered by Peggy Lee). Vocal harmonies, lots of fiddle, and lots of fun. (Neile)
