Worth It After All CD by Su Hart, 'a voice that smiles,' offers a personal collection of Su's favourite World Music songs.
Su Hart, who is the singer of the band Baka Beyond, named the album after a song she wrote to celebrate the release of Nelson Mandela which she recorded in the rainforest with a bunch of Baka Pygmy children.
Worth It After All features many of her friends such as Ed Boyd and Martin Cradick on guitar, Leon Hunt on banjo and Stevie Holder on double bass, as well as musicians famous in the British folk world, such as Brian Finnegan of Flook on flute and Tim Eady on accordion.
Worth It After All is a personal collection of Su's favourite songs, the earliest learned from her Geordie singing teacher, Mrs Hilda Brown already an octogenarian when Su began singing as a teenager. 'We had such a laugh together that the spark of singing and performing was lit for life," said Su.
Worth It After All moves from songs of longing and love, such as the passionate Lament of the Fisherman's Wife to quirky calypso - personalised versions of British calypso style of the '50s is one of Su's performance specialities.
