David Llewellyn and Ida Kristin - Songs Around the Kitchen Table (Dabhand Records)

Star rating: 
3

With some finely-crafted original songs, together with one or two well-chosen covers, the fruits of this Welsh/Swedish duo's evenings at the kitchen table (in Llewelyn's Nashville home) are treated to some fine arrangements and confident performances throughout. With three very well-known covers, Paul Simon's 59th St Bridge Song, Ewan MacColl's The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face and Pete Seeger's Turn, Turn, Turn, it's with the original songs that set this duo apart. Coffee Shop Song is a delightfully original idea, which possibly exemplifies just how 'together' Llewellyn and Kristin are as performers.
