Every so often a singer in the arts community attempts to take folk music and turn it into parlour music. The results, from a folkie's perspective, are inevitably unsatisfying, despite the trained voices. Such is the case with Linda Dempster's Folklore in Song, recorded in a church in Toronto. Accompanied by Brahm Goldhamer on piano, Dempster sings her way through a folksong repertoire as if they were lieder.
