LEAVING YESTERDAY~~~The Highway One Ensemble was brought together by lyricist Nancy Dunn to record this achingly beautiful collection of songs. The group features such luminaries as Gerry O'Beirne on guitar, Kevin Burke on fiddle and Paul McCandless (of Oregon) on woodwinds. Most of the spellbinding vocals were done by Kate Brubeck with a few haunting selections sung by Doug Adamz (of Light Rain). The world class recording is rich and liquid; a dreamscape of acoustic guitars, bass, oboe, English Horn, violin, cello, harmonium, tipple, penny whistle and just a tasteful touch of percussion. If you ever plan to drive the California coast on Highway One, north of Santa Barbara, through Big Sur and on to Mendicino, this would be the perfect soundtrack for your journey.
