Weekly 20 Songs Playlist: August 31

This week’s list has a bit of a theme, in that all the songs are either female solos, female/male duets or instrumentals. I’ve included several very local artists and quite a few ‘world’ musicians, aka musicians who are not in/from the USA. One of the albums listed below is available in Europe, but not in the US, and the Celtic Thunder song this week is from a DVD release, though it may still be possible to purchase songs by download from itunes (I bought one of the songs off this one through itunes a while ago, anyway). All of the songs listed here are on spotify, as always. Happy Listening!

1. “The Lark in the Morning”- Distant Oaks (Against the Tide)
2. “Gypsy Davy”- Emily Smith (Traiveller’s Joy)
