Road I Took to You
She has shared the stage with Allison Krauss and John Hartford. In one historic, groundbreaking concert she shared the stage with the late Ernest Tubbs. From Carnegie Hall to country church, Marita Brake's music seems to resonate with a wide variety of audiences, genres and critics alike. Now, in this rare re-release from PBS specials, this gentle, heartrending performer, likened to Emmy Lou Harris and Allison Krauss, takes us on an unforgettable journey, 'The Road I Took To You'. From the plaintive, Miss The Mississippi and You to the the playful, Garden Song, this acoustic combination of folk and bluegrass made stops along the way in several PBS features. While showcasing Brake's early years, it is none the less strong for the effort. Charming acoustic originals, familiar songs of home and heartache and spiritual alchemy make this CD a treasure trove of Americana. In fact, the famous Chicago author, Studs Terkel, called her 'an American treasure'. A truly wonderful tribute from an American Icon! Classic!
