Amy Carol Webb: Home
Amy continues her tribute to Florida’s rich musical heritage with
“WELCOME HOME: Florida Songs, Florida Songs Vol. 2”
You know her as a Miami Herald “One to Watch,” a Billboard “Act to Watch” and New Times “Best Solo Artist.” Some have called her “the queen of Florida music.” With her 9th CD, Amy Carol Webb deepens legacy of Florida’s music with WELCOME HOME: Florida songs, Florida friends vol.2
This verdant musical journey brings five new songs from Amy - like the pastoral meditation "In My Florida," a moment in the festival life captured in "Wakin' Up in White Springs" and the heart-bursting title track "Welcome Home!" - as well as five lush tributes to Florida troubadours gone before - including Will McLean's haunting "Courtship Dance of the Florida Sandhill Crane," Steve Blackwell's call to our ancestors "The Line," and Ann Thomas' tender ode for plight of the manatee "The Storyteller."
Half recorded live in the Will McLean festival campground, Amy involved as many noted Florida musicians as she could fit under the canopy of a camper, then finished off with the master touch of Ron Litschauer's Acoustic Music Productions Studio in West Palm Beach.
The concert likewise features musicians coming from near and far who played under that festival canopy - Mindy Simmons, Lis & Lon Williamson (Gatorbone), Ron and Bari Litschauer and more!
