Regina Carter – Southern Comfort

With Southern Comfort, violinist Regina Carter sets out to revive traditional southern classics, but also keeping them raw. From the opening “Miner’s Child,” an ode to her grandfather who was a coal miner in Alabama, to the slow-soaring “I’m Going Home” to the savory closing medley of “Death Have Mercy/Breakaway,” Carter accomplished her goals of making a musical journey that has both historical discovery and emotional sincerity.
