Bluestack Mountain Girl
It was perhaps inevitable that Leanne would turn out to be a musician, combining folk music and bluegrass. Most of her mother’s side of the family, who come from County Donegal, are musicians and her father, Ced Thorose has bluegrass roots, having originated from one of the southern states of America. I first met Leanne when she was about ten years old, shortly before she decided to teach herself mandolin, fiddle and guitar.

By the time we recorded this album, Leanne was 21 and a professional musician touring with “Essence of Ireland”. In 2010 I was determined to help her make her own CD and we agreed that we would stick to original material. I agreed to write the lyrics and Leanne agreed to write all the music, which included three instrumentals. We considered recording in England but I decided that we really needed to go to Nashville. I therefore contacted Mark Moseley, who had produced my 2002 album, “Dogwood Place”, and he secured the talents of what can only be described as some of the finest bluegrass musicians in the world under the leadership of guitarist, Bryan Sutton. These included Aubrey Haynie (fiddle), Adam Steffey and Andy Leftwich (mandolin), Mike Bub and Dennis Crouch (bass) and Scott Vestal (banjo).

I have no doubt that this debut album is the beginning of a great career.
