Thoughts of Home: Traditional American Folk Music
Anne Milligan's singing voice has been linked to that of Joan Baez, Judy Collins and Emmy Lou Harris. Her crystal-clear vocal style is a welcome relief when a listener would actually like to know what are the actual words of a song! In addition to one of her own songs, she has compiled the titles on this album roughly around the theme of 'home', songs that reflect home as an elusive concept, home as an immortal resting place, home as patriotic love of one's own country, etc. Her rendition of 'My Old Kentucky' home is profoundly beautiful in it's clarity and vocal purity. Anne Milligan can also command acapella songs with power and radiance, which she does handily on 'Angel Band' and 'Hard Times, Come Again No More'. Anne Milligan has a five-octave range and so is able to provide some serious harmony on the acapella song 'Angel Band'. Anne Milligan is also a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in Louisville, Kentucky.
