Ginny Hawker sings with the soulfulness and honesty that form the life-breath of rural American music. On Letters From My Father she brings together an all-star band, including Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott, to celebrate the musical legacy passed on to her by her father, Ben Hawker. In doing so, she reunites the musical first cousins - bluegrass, old-time, gospel, and honky-tonk - that lie at the center of her tradition. Every note tells you that she's lived what she sings. If you've lived the same, you'll feel it. If not, she'll make you want to get busy as she exposes the real source of country music - a deeply felt need to share the joys and sorrows of life. Produced by Dirk Powell.
