'Beneath the Starry Sky' - Released 30th November!

The songs I have chosen for this album have taken me on quite a different musical journey. From Orkney to Nashville & back to Orkney again!

"'Beneath the Starry Sky' is still a folk album but I have used my new found love for Americana/Country styles within the arrangements of the songs. I have covered songs again by some of my favourite Folk artists but also tried some Americana songs which has been an enjoyable process for me. This album has a fuller sound with harmony vocals & a good range of instruments including guitars,mandolin,piano,accordion,cello,percussion..."

"'Beneath the Starry Sky' marks a progression into a more fully produced roots and
Americana arena for Jo while staying true to the folk sensibilities that
have made her one of Orkney's most well loved artists in recent years. A
fabulous singer and a wonderful album."
