Alison Self, playing some covers and some originals from her cleverly named album "Self-Titled," was simply a delight. I have a sneaking suspicion that she is the type of girl who uses a word like 'swell' in her vernacular. She was sweet and yet audacious, whimsical yet sassy, reminiscent of another time, perhaps a time more closely attune to the hay-days of Loretta Lynn and Emmy Lou Harris. Strumming her ukulele, singing soft and clear, Self was an endearing woman who impressed us with the cunning ability to cut the chill of the winter night with her remarkable warmth. The way she sung, and the songs she sings, leads her listeners to a deeper place that was more than a little bittersweet."
