Jim and Holly Lawrence / Press

“Holly’s resonant a cappella rendition of Burns’ “Such a Parcel of Rogues” is powerful and almost anthemic in its expression... “The Brownies,” a Jim Lawrence composition, is delightful...“Redemption” is...starkly gorgeous..." With Caledonian Shadows, Jim & Holly Lawrence have succeeded in assembling a body of songs, both traditional and original, that reflect their love for Celtic music with a balance of reverence and creative passion. This album serves well in keeping to the motto “Celtic music with an American twist,” making for an accessible listening experience for the uninitiated and devotee alike. ”

“This local father and daughter team of Jim Lawrence and Holly Breivik have pulled together a number of very talented musicians. Holly’s voice is sweet, pure, honest and strong, as evidenced by cut 1, “Such a Parcel of Rogues”, originally penned by Robert Burns (1759-1796). ...if you have a love for the sounds of traditional highland folk music, or if you’d like to give it a shot for the first time, “Caledonian Shadows” by Jim and Holly Lawrence is a great place to start, or continue the traditional sounds of Celtic music. ”

““Redemption”...has a haunting quality that is ancient and deep in timbre and tone..Jim and Holly Lawrence offer up a hard-hewn, traditional and reverent offering of traditional Scottish tunes on Caledonian Shadows."”
