Album Review

Winter's Dance was the last Golden Bough album that included mandolin, mandola and flute player Lief Sorbye before he left to form Tempest. Also present are long-standing members Paul Espinoza on accordion, guitar, mandolin and vocals, Margie Butler on vocals and harp, and violinist Florie Brown. It, at times, has a sound similar to Robin Williamson's Merry Band of the late '70s, thanks to the harp and mandola interaction. The instructional "Logs to Burn" is no doubt derived from "Woodcutter's Song" (or vice versa), which Williamson recorded in 1979. Sorbye was the source for the "Dat Va Den Heilage Jolekvell," a Norwegian folk song about the Barrow man that has since found its way on to two Tempest albums and a Sorbye solo project. It, along with the medley "One Bottle More/Humors of Winter/Apples in Winter" and "Down in Yon Forest," adds to an agreeable assortment of standards and seldom-heard songs of the season.
