Product Description


On Blue Horse, their debut CD, three young Canadian songbirds (Frazey Ford, Samantha Parton and Trish Klein) join the neo-trad movement that has given us such notable voices as Iris DeMent and Gillian Welch. But where Welch finds inspiration in the dark hollows and tragic tales of Appalachian music, the Be Good Tanyas seek out sweetness and light, revelling in the interplay of their beautifully trilling voices. Blue Horse is deeply rooted but no exercise in old-time purism; originals outnumber traditional songs, and the core accompaniment of guitar and banjo is often supplemented by bass and drums, creating a lilt redolent of Rickie Lee Jones in "The Littlest Birds" and a reggae-tinged groove on the haunting old ballad "Rain and Snow". The band name may be a bit tough to get your lips around, but the music of this talented trio is a refreshing drink from a clear mountain stream. --Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers

5.0 out of 5 stars I am In Agreement Oct. 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
just wanted to agree with the people who have pointed this out as the excellent album it is. Perhaps one of the only things that I would like to point out is the superlative Chieftains style treatment of the old standard "Coo Coo". What should sound like old hat is fresh and new on this album. The Blue Horse gets top marks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vancouver trio Feb. 28 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an amazing trio from this Vancouver based group. Stumbled into a concert a few years back not knowing who they were and became an instant fan. Purchased all 3 of their cd's the very next day. All arrived in great condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something new and wonderful Nov. 30 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the best CD of any genre I've heard this year, even though I'm not sure what genre it is. I suppose they've created a new one. If you like the sound clips here, you'll like the entire CD, which is remarkably consistent.
I am absolutely delighted to have discovered such a unique sound. In a broad sense, it reminds me of discovering the Band 30-some years ago, with the loose homey feeling of their music, but these sweet little songs make the Band sound pretentious by comparison. Yes, there are other folk singers, bluegrass singers, alt-country singers with girlish voices who make beautiful music. But none of them makes music like this, and this CD has become an indispensable part of my collection.
It isn't that there is a remarkable voice here, or an amazing instrumentalist. It's the creation of a sound that's truly their own. I'm not sure I'd go as far as those below who call it angelic, but it's surely a sweet, if light, pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars needed this Aug. 30 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have to give 5 stars to women who put themselves out there and do what they want. Their music is familiar, yet different enough to keep my interest. I can't help but take the less than esctatic reviewers (those that gave less than 4 stars) personally, but all I can say, is if you like what you hear on the snipets that amazon.com offers, you will like the CD even more (the snipets don't do the songs justice). If you hate it, you hate it. I can't convert you. For those who tend towards torch-and-twang/folk music, this cd and this trio is for you. I love them like I've known them for years, and I just bought both their cds 2.5 hours ago at the suggestion of an in-law. She knows me better than I thought...

These four women (that's counting Jolie Holland!)
produce some of the most beautiful, sweet, wierd,
intriguing, compex, and utterly arresting haunting
vocals I have heard anywhere ever. And I listen
to a lot of stuff -- broad spectrum, as it
were ... "Oh Susanna", "The Lakes of Pontchartrain",
and "Littlest Birds" are three of the most beautiful performances you will ever hear. Trust me. And
the rest of the CD is good too, but you can discover
the rest for yourself. The price of the CD is worth
the three above-mentioned songs alone. (You've
heard "Oh Susanna" a thousand times? You're bored
with the song? Listen at it again, Jack ... this is
the definitive version. It's sublimely beautiful,
beyond your wildest expectations.)
Cheers to all of ya (and Be Good, you Canadian and Texas
Tanya girls ... I'm looking for you to show up in New
Orleans. I'm holding my breath.)
-- Charlie D.

5.0 out of 5 stars they found it June 24 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Someone has finally picked up the scent of folk, wherever it has been lost to the four winds all of these years. Not only that, the Be Good Tanyas infuse it with even more than it ever was before. You know what back porch means even if you never had one.
