    Take a listen to the first song on the list "Wisdom Guide Me"
    I can't think of another folksinger with her incredible voice, on some of her songs, Judy Collins comes to mind but that is just an approximation, this girl is GREAT! Also a great songwriter.
    I came across her song Wisdom on a Sing Out subscription where you get a CD of the songs written about in the magazine. That issue, 46 #2, also featured Bruce Cockburne on his song 'The Mines of Mozambique' A chilling song about the hidden mines blowing up the feet and legs of children. 'War is the artist and it sows a bitter seed'.
    But take a listen to Eileen, she is worth the effort to go to her site!

    Not bad. I'm a huge Cockburn fan, too. Funny how too such divergent world views can still allow for complimentary tastes in other lesser important fields, eh?

    Lesser to you maybe🙂 I have been into folk music most all of my life, played in some great venues, national TV and stuff, still recording at home writing new tunes, have a myspace site if you care to listen, maybe you already did, not sure, have about 800 friends there. Did you ever listen to his 'mines' song?
