Ginny Hawker: After It's Gone CD
Produced by Dirk Powell and recorded at his Cypress House studio in Louisiana.
Musicians include Kevin Wimmer, Eric Frey, and Glen Fields from The Red Stick Ramblers, plus Jim Miller,
Jesse Wells, Brett Ratliff, Tracy Schwarz, Richard Comeaux, Kari Sickenberger, and Courtney Granger.

"Ginny Hawker's voice is one of the true glories of traditional music. Her pitch is true, the passion controlled,
not contrived, and it doesn't lapse into folky histrionics. She has the uncanny knack of locating the
emotional core of whatever song she approaches, and once she's sung it, it stays sung." from notes by Randy Pitts.

Ginny Hawker & Tracy Schwarz: Draw Closer, Released 2004 CD
(Ginny Hawker, Tracy Schwarz, Ron Stewart, Peter Schwarz, Kari Sickenberger)
Produced by Dirk Powell


"Ginny Hawker has emerged as one of America's finest traditional singers, bringing a contemporary vitality to the soulful and unvarnished sounds of old-time mountain music. Tracy Schwarz has been a flamekeeper for old-time music since joining the New Lost City Ramblers in 1962. On Draw Closer they join together with Ron Stewart, Peter Schwarz and producer Dirk Powell for a captivating set of timeless music. "To survive in Ginny and Tracy's world a song has to be lean and its subject clear. They seem to understand that a song too full of itself leaves no room for the singer. The ones they choose are like sturdy old mountain cabins, with strong walls and a lack of excess within. They inhabit them completely, leaving the door cracked for us to follow."-Dirk Powell

Song list: Katie Dear. Those Blue Eyes. Soldier's Farewell. The Poor Drunkard's Dream. Little Willie. My Closest Neighbor. Climbing Up the Golden Stairs. The Dying Ranger. Love Will Roll the Clouds Away. Salem's Bright King. Poor Orphan Child. Lonesome. Lonesome for You, Darling. Please Baby.
