Despite hailing from the USA, Lily Honigberg’s latest tune Melrose is an Irish inspired folk song, in the more traditional style.
By Jane Howkins
The song mostly consists of several contrasting violin melodies, working together in harmonious style. As the song continues, the music gets faster and faster, building up into a gorgeous climax of sounds. It’s also very beautiful, with the folky melodies conjuring up evocative images in the mind, bringing the listener back centuries to a time when this music was more commonly heard.
