CD REVIEW: Sue Jeffers – “Welcome Home”
By Stacey Board - 04/27/2004 - 06:23 PM EDT

Artist: Sue Jeffers
Album: “Welcome Home”
CD Review: Sue Jeffers definitely is a traditional folk singer. Almost any song written on an acoustic guitar these days is described as ‘folk’. But “Welcome Home” is what I define as true folk.

Jeffers is writing about issues that involve power and injustice. These are songs with a message, a heart and a conscience. They cover topics ranging from war in Iraq to class distinctions in America.

Jeffers plays a fine acoustic guitar. Other instruments include harmonica, banjo, slide guitar, drums and bass. Kitchenware is also listed but you will have to listen for yourself to identify it.

There is a surprise on the last track, “Spudz on par-aid” which sounds like something from Pulp Fiction gone off track into Appalachia. I would guess there was more than coffee drinking going on during the conception of this song.

Lovers of folk music with a political purpose will love “Welcome Home”.
