Rebecca Pidgeon, the acclaimed Scottish actress, has also displayed her gift as a singer/songwriter on her several well-received albums. Taking elements from folk, pop, jazz, and Celtic traditions, Pidgeon crafts lilting, intimate poetry. Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, she later moved to Edinburgh, Scotland with her family at the age of 5.
Pidgeon’s first Chesky release, The Raven, featured Pidgeon’s stunning version of “Spanish Harlem.” The Raven went on to become an audiophile classic, thanks to Pidgeon’s crystalline voice and Chesky’s high-fidelity recording techniques. Her second album, The New York Girls’ Club, brought her unique singing and songwriting to more music lovers.
Intimately performed and recorded, Four Marys, released in 1998 showcases Rebecca’s unique interpretations of timeless Celtic folk songs. As much a testament to her musical roots as it is to her tremendous vocal presence, this recording leads both music lovers and audiophiles down an engaging new path.
She now resides in Boston and Vermont with her husband and their daughter. Between album projects, Pidgeon has starred in the Mamet plays “Oleanna,” “Speed the Plow,” “The Old Neighborhood,” and the motion pictures “The Spanish Prisoner” and “The Winslow Boy.”
The Raven returns now in a lavish 180-gram vinyl reissue, plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings. This album is among Chesky Record’s most striking, powerful and fully realized vocal records to date.
