Flying Into Blue is an unconventional collection of songs and lullabies from regions as diverse as Ireland, Mexico, Russian Karelia and Finland, combined with her own fine songwriting and poems set to original music.
Flying Into Blue combines the artistry of her songwriting with her love of world music and poetry. She sings songs in Karelian, Sami, Gaelic and Spanish as well as poetry by Keats, Rossetti, Dickinson and Poe. These are blended with some of her original songs, and features accompaniment by many award-winning instumentalists.
