Shauna Burns’ take on the traditional song “Scarborough Fair” is haunting, with nods to performers like Tori Amos and Ani DiFranco. The sheer emotion and passion that is brought to the timeless original by Shauna’s vocals is impressive. There is little more instrumentally to this composition than a piano and a harp, but Burns is able to make tremendously deep interactions between the instrumental arrangements and her inimitable vocals. The extended instrumental interlude provides a bit of differentiation and a boost to the cut’s momentum. The track is one that will resound with listeners long after the song ceases to play.
