I loved interviewing Christie Simmons last year for our Good Living series in the Globe and Mail: a writer, mother, wife and communications consultant, she was about to realize her life-long dream of releasing a CD. She has played and sung with Celtic and blue grass bands, and both influences are present in her music.
I can’t wait to get my hands on her CD, Winnie’s Song, which is now available. But in the meantime, she’s made some of the tracks available here: http://www.myspace.com/christiejsimmons
I’m listening now, and it makes me very happy.
Here’s the article I wrote about Christie’s endeavour: christie-simmons-nov409-2
