By R.L. Holly "piper909" (Austin, TX USA) - See all my reviews
"Three" is a very smart and finely crafted first album from Lori Watson and her bandmates. Like an old-fashioned wedding, this disc of contemporary and traditional Scottish folk offers something old, something new, some things borrowed and some things blue. The musicianship is impeccable and the production warm and precise. Watson is best known as a soulful fiddle player grounded in the roots of tradition but she is also an expressive singer on these tracks, with a silky smooth and admirably restrained voice. She breathes new life into these old tales of love and loss, tragedy and triumph.

A wonderful charmer of an album that promises fine music from Watson and her "Rule of Three" (the new band moniker) for years to come. Jump on this train before it leaves the station! Three
