Jo May - Percussion


Quote
Jo originally trained at the Royal College of Music and began her career working with orchestras such as the BBC Symphony Orchestra. A trip to Sidmouth Folk Festival sparked an enthusiasm for traditional music, which led to her interest in West African and Afro-Cuban music, as well as folk music from Europe and the British Isles. She has studied West African drumming and balafon (West African xylophone) with a number of different teachers, both in England and in Senegal. And she has completed courses in Afro-Cuban and Afro-Brazilian percussion with One Voice Music.

Album Notes
While this isn't one of the Watersons' more significant albums, it's an important document of the group, for these Christmas carols, performed in December 1980 for a local Yorkshire radio station, were the last recordings of the group's earliest lineups (Norma Waterson, Lal Waterson, Mike Waterson, and Martin Carthy who replaced John Harrison in 1968) ever done. The quartet sing the seasonal tunes a cappella, interspersed with holiday stories and readings by wizened Yorkshire locals Kit Calvert, Norman Benson, and Mabel Race, drawing upon Christmas experiences of their childhood. As is the case for many radio broadcasts alternating music and spoken word, it's better heard as a whole on the radio than on the home stereo. But taken by itself, the music is good, the Watersons offering distinctive and stellar harmonization of the songs in a traditional English folk cast, imbued with the sparkling melancholy so particular to the genre. With good fidelity, it's certainly an above-average Christmas record, and one absent of the sentimental pandering so prevalent in much holiday music. The singing's good enough to make it enjoyable at all times, though by its very nature there's not as much variety here as there is on the Watersons' best recordings. ~ Richie Unterberger
