  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mih-BBxpMWU A youtube video of Gillian Performing Silken String at the gig I wrote about earlier.
  • Gillian played yesterday at my favourite pub in my hometown Hengelo (NL). What a great performance. A nice voice, excellent harpplaying and lovely songs.
  • Heard her when she was still at Bryn Mawr. Just incredibly talented in every way.
  • There are live recordings of two new songs on her homepage. http://www.gilliangrassie.com/ as well as the lyrics of three new songs Can't wait for a new album, though I know it will still take some time ... http://www.gilliangrassie.com/lyrics/new-songs

Now, the right combination of instruments to accompany her - why not even a bass (Tal !), possibly a flute, a hang, tabla or even more exotic instruments ? Her voice !!! Maybe too special to sell millions - but definitely premier league ! Definitely unique ! And her own lyrics !!! She might be the cult, soon ! Glad I saw her now :-)
