James Hill & Anne Davison – True Love Don’t Weep
True Love Don’t Weep is an eclectic offering of tunes new and old, original and re-discovered. Poignant songs are punctuated by quicksilver instrumentals and raucous sing-a-longs; ukulele, banjo, cello, voice, guitar, brass and winds entwine through 12 tracks that resonate unabashedly with bluegrass, old-time, dixieland, gospel, and blues influences.
James and Anne, having first met at university, have since become personal and creative partners, stealing hearts at music festivals both at home and abroad. Their live performances are a mix of storytelling, feats of virtuosity, spontaneous sing-a-longs, and haunting vocal harmonies. True Love Don’t Weep, their much-anticipated debut as a duo, captures the intensity, exuberance, and playfulness of their live performances.
Featuring the ear-popping instrumental Ode to a Frozen Boot, the existential gospel sing-a-long Travelin’ On, and the breathtaking Oh! Susanna.
