A Welsh American combination, who would have thought it? But one which works and provides sweet harmonious music.
Al Lewis from Wales met Mississippi Miss Alva Leigh in London and together they have produced an album which wouldn’t look out of place back in good old Nashville.
Its their debut album and hits the spot right away with the first song “There is Light’’, a gentle song which brings peace to the headphones as it explores the places Al and Alva grew up in. Then there is “Heartbeat’’ , exploring how you live with secrets in relationships and the wonderful “Losing Time’’, battling against the daily grind.
The singers are well known on the festival circuit, performing at Celtic Connections, Country 2 Country and Cambridge Folk Festival and they are due to be special guests when Scottish band Deacon Blue tour in November.
And they are sure to go down a storm with the fans with their beautiful music.
Lewis and Leigh – Ghost – released on Celticana Records on August 26th, www.lewisandleigh.com
