“Colorado blues/folk musician Kevin Dooley calls his particular brand of music "American Celtic". You'd guess the Irish heritage isn't very far away at all with a name like that, though Kevin sings with an American accent that sounds thick with tobacco juice - he could be one of those familiar faces (and voices) that pops up in endless 1950s westerns. Moonlight Highway has thirteen songs that are a pretty inspired mix of Kevin Dooley originals (four of them) and a wide selection from some of the finest modern writers. There's a couple from the ever-anonymous folk tradition, too, and in all these choices he has managed to find wonderful songs that are far from being overfamiliar. Obviously the trad material (Ferryman and Old man at the Mill) will be pretty old, but there's a fair age range in the rest of the songs. Tom Waits' Shiver MeTimbers dates from the 70s but The Big Easy was a recent hit for its writer, bluesman Ray Bonneville. There's some really cracking songs in this selection”
