"Bats and Butterflies" is a very pleasant surprise, it is one of those CDs that improves with every listening. Sarana VerLin's folk rock style owes more to Fairport Conventions Celtic stylings than the styles of the Byrds or Dylan. Of the twelve cuts eight are self penned, three are instrumentals and one is a cover of the aforementioned Fairports "Crazy Man Michael" which she delivers in her breathy alto that recalls not at all Sandy Denny's original soprano. Of the originals the standouts are the title track and "Winter Warriors" (IMHO). A multi instrumentalist Sarana plays guitar, violin, synthesizer and some percussion as well handling the singing tasks. All in all this is a fine effort worthy of your consideration.
