reviews Sideways by Moirai

Moirai ("spinners of destiny") are Jo Freya, Sarah Matthews, and Melanie Biggs. They play saxes, clarinets, violin, guitar, melodeon, and flute; all sing. Spinning a carefully woven carpet of tunes, several from the Continent, and songs, several self written, this is a welcome back to Jo and her new trio. The full title "Knickers On Sideways" gives a clue to this enterprising disc. Best track "Candlelight" is dedicated to Maggie Boyle. CWR
