Donna Ulisse Album Release ShowBluegrass
After a half-dozen albums devoted almost exclusively to her original songs, bluegrass singer Donna Ulisse decided to take a different tack with her new one, titled Showin’ My Roots (Hadley Music Group). As it turns out, Ulisse’s roots are largely in country music, so in addition to the inevitable Stanley Brothers numbers — she did, after all, marry into the family — the set dishes up songs from Hank Locklin, Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and a pair from the Loretta Lynn songbook, among others, bookended by a couple of thematic originals, one of which is the title track. It also turns out that Ulisse delivers the standards with the same conviction and nuance she invests in her own songs, making the album a strong change-up from her usual focus. And though Roots features her usual studio crew, the material’s pure catnip to her more-than-capable road band, the Poor Mountain Boys.
