A voice as sweet and pure as a mountain stream, with the warm glow of amber ale. Lovely.

Wonderful song and arrangement, but it was your singing that really made it for me. It should never surprise that so many fiddle players can also sing great, since both need a fine ear for pitch.

Another wonderful piece by this talented lady!

Loved everything about this one...one of the best I've heard here at open mic! 5 stars!

This one was just perfect, everything about it was seamless, from the strings to the harmonies. I'd buy the CD for this song.

Just perfect. One of the best tunes around here!

Stunningly beautiful! I will be watching Lissa's touring dates for the opportunity to hear her live. In the meantime, I'm ever grateful to FolkAlley for sharing her precious gifts.

Lissa's fiddle playing and singing reminds me of a much better known talent, Alison Krauss. I hope to find a CD of Lissa's music. Thanks!

There's a lovely sparseness to this one. Lissa's voice is perfect for this song. The other songs in her list are worthy and should be heard widely. The fiddle playing sounds almost effortless. First rate.

I listened to this song a few days ago while studying and it has been stuck in my head ever since! I love it!

Clear, lovely, and lyrical voice, and a fine fiddler as well. I look forward to hearing more.

celestial afterthoughts laced with classically sophisticated overtones... bright yet conversational... delights the imagination... clean and clear as mirror glass... hints of green apple, gooseberry, with a note of asparagus... of course this description is of the fine sauvigon blanc i'm enjoying along with Lissa'a lovely voice... of which, words fall short!

asparagus, Chris?

JL, altho Woody Guthrie or Merle Haggard probably wouldn't mind... wine connoisseurs avoid (like the plague) using the expression "oaky quality"... read (Okie)... therefore, my substitution... "a note of asparagus"... btw, i love this song!

What can be added to these powerful comments? Stunning, beautiful, all seem too trite when talking about Lissa's talent.

How about "wow"?

Look out Alison! Lissa's in the house!! Great song..vocals and instrumentation. Two Thumbs Up!

Posted by

Sweet arrangement of a great song, nice job!

Posted by

A wonderful example of a level of transcendent talent from an artist that allows the liquid notes to emanate from her body - never pushed, never rushed, never too soft, never too loud. If I were teaching a vocal class, I would play Lissa singing this song as an example of what can be achieved with the human voice as an instrument. -Dennis Leahy

The lifts and lowerings of the volume of your voice are studied and excellent. I have never heard the like! It's really beautiful.

Great song, lovely performance..give my regards to Keith..also, I've written a couple of books of fiddle music [Canadian,750 tunes]..you could contact me through Luck's X-Road I think, if you're interested..

Alright. This is a nice little treat. Good voice. Nice dynamics building thru the song. Liking that bass build.
Good harmonies. Lightening up now. And building again. Good use of dynamics.
Good job, Lissa
