Gorgeous harmonies on gospel outing
Marley's Ghost is a country outfit out of Seattle that both individually and in ensemble feature some of the best talent you'll ever run across.
For listeners, "How Can I Keep From Singing?" is such a delight not only for the beautiful (and bountiful) vocal harmonies they bring to traditional songs like "Sowin' on the Mountain," "Pass Me Not" and "Walkin' in Jerusalem" but because they stick to the gospel theme. On previous outings, they've attempted everything from Jimmy Buffett to the deepest reggae to Irish jigs, generally on the same disc. Here, though, they stay fairly true to the course.
They accompany their sweet four-part harmonies with mostly traditional instruments banjo, mandolin, dobro, Scottish bagpipes, with a Hammond organ adding some extra soul.
