CD REVIEW: Victoria Parks – “Wild English Rose”
By Stacey Board - 11/20/2003 - 10:13 PM EST

Artist: Victoria Parks
Album: “Wild English Rose”
CD Review: This CD sounds like it's full of traditional tunes, but actually only three of the 13 tunes are traditional. The other 10 are Parks’ original compositions. There is straightforward storytelling here, with information in the liner notes that makes each song even richer once you’ve read more of the back story.

“Wild English Rose” definitely has a traditional folk sound all throughout in the writing and arrangement. There are a wide variety of instruments, including sitar, keyboards, bodhran, violin, highland pipes, cello, mandolin and others. The stories are often true stories and are in the oral tradition of passing along a story in song. Anyone who likes traditional English and Irish folk music will find very much to enjoy here.

Parks’ voice is high, fine and lovely and it is well suited to her writing. She assembled many fine players to round out the sound. “Wild English Rose” is a pleasing collection of traditional and traditionally influenced songs, well written and performed throughout.
