The long-awaited successor to her acclaimed debut album, Somebody, this collection of Celtic songs and ballads highlights Connie's ravishing voice and richly-layered vocal harmonies.
The Wishing Well is a quietly stunning musical journey that carries the listener from the highlands of Scotland to the cloisters of medieval Europe, and from 17th Century Ireland to the wilderness of the American West. The pure acoustic backing is a collation of instrumental lushness performed by Scotland and Ireland's finest traditional musicians.
"A collection as radiant as its predecessor...always elegant and sensual...the logical musical progression of an outstanding performer...this second CD, like its predecessor, absolutely belongs in your collection!"
- Massimo Ferro, La Voce, Italy
"Inventive, elegant and extremely enjoyable after a thousand listens, The Wishing Well is an impressive addition to the local, and national, music culture." - The Pitch, Kansas City
"The music is wonderfully atmospheric, and supportive of the lyrics and the singer. Connie Dover sings with such great care and knowledge of the emotional content of the words. She has the voice of an angel. In my humble opinion we must now add Connie Dover's name to the list of the great singers of our time."
- Joseph Guida, KVMR-FM, Nevada City/Sacramento, California
"A sumptuous listening pleasure. The Wishing Well reaffirms the fact that Connie Dover has talent by the bucketful. Essential listening." - John O'Regan, Radio Limerick, Ireland
"The opening track is a stunning mix of pop and tradition, and the rest of album only gets better...Play it!!"
- Cliff Furnald, CMJ New Music Report
"An excellent work with true feeling. A rare find!" - Chinese Press, Singapore
"She may come from the land of hamburgers, cowboys and cola, but Celtic musical blood runs through her veins." - New FolkSounds, Netherlands
