This debut album from autoharp virtuoso Bonnie Phipps is long overdue. Besides documenting some of the liveliest and most imaginative autoharp picking we’ve heard, it showcases Phipps as soloist in finely woven arrangements with cello, guitar, concertina, and pennywhistle. Her sophisticated transcription of ‘March of the Siamese Children’ from The King And I is one for the books. Highly recommended.”
