Personnel: Eliza Carthy (vocals, ukulele).
In this collection of contemporary-flavored folk and intimate ballads, the British singer Eliza Carthy retains her fresh approach to the traditional folk music performed by her illustrious parents, the folk icons Norma Waterson and Martin Carthy. "Follow the Dollar" is a bluesy protest song; "Like I Care" has a light-hearted, Caribbean-tinged lilt; and Carthy flexes both her creative and her musical muscles on the gorgeous, dramatically arranged "Hug You Like a Mountain."
