This Little Bird

This Little Bird” adds the final straw to Allison Crowe’s album/CD of the same name. Fitting today as Allison is back in her nest in “a corner in the East” – following a series of concerts that add to the legend. Allison, piano and voice, is again accompanied by Dave Baird, bass, and Laurent Boucher, percussion, featuring… cowbell!

Skeletons and Spirits

In the days of 45 rpm singles, this song, “Skeletons and Spirits“, could form a “double A-side” with “Effortless“.

A favourite Allison Crowe tune for many, including other performers, it’s also been the music to a fun range of videos – including this recent animation by Norwich, UK-based Christina Worby
