Celtic musician Mary Black is most popular in Ireland. As a female vocalist she has fans' respect from modern and traditional music with her uncanny knack for unveiling the true meaning of a song. Babes In the Wood topped the charts of Ireland in 1991 for six weeks.
This is a very feminine record, gentle and thoughtful.
"Black is set to conquer a new world." - Rolling Stone.
"It's one time that separates her from international stardom." - The New York Post.
"She connected emotionally with her material practically on a molecular level...a staggering talent, a breathtaking vocalist who hardly fits any conventional mold..." - San Francisco Chronicle.
