Janet McGarry

Forever is the Love—Janet McGarryForever is the Love is the latest CD release from Janet McGarry. The album expresses themes of love, family, faith and life. The fourteen songs range from traditional bluegrass and gospel to straight ahead country.

"As with everything in our lives, we’re always at it together, side by side,” says Janet, refering to how she and her husband Serge Bernard collaborated on this project. “I grew up listening to country music, and Serge on bluegrass music, so it’s no surprise that I’ve delved into the country side of things for songs by artists such as Melba Montgomery, Wilma Lee Cooper and Dolly Parton. But there are many standard bluegrass songs on this album for the bluegrass lover too. Songs by Jim & Jesse, Ralph Stanley, The Carter Family and one of my musical heros—Hazel Dickens. I also have two new songs—one from my dear friend Louisa Branscomb from Georgia, and one from J. P. Cormier, closer to home in Nova Scotia.”

“Say Forever You’ll Be Mine” is the title track from the album. Janet says each of the songs were hand-picked after hours of listening to many of her musical heros, and condensing the list down to fourteen songs. “Sea of Galilee” is immediately recognized as a Carter Family song. Here she is joined by friends of theirs, husband-wife team of Heather Berry & Tony Mabe from North Carolina.

Other tracks include the George Jones/Melba Montgomery classic “Long as We’re Dreaming”; Hazel Dicken’s “A Few Old Memories”; and the gospel song by Ralph Stanley “The Darkest Hour is Just Before Dawn.”

This album was produced by Serge Bernard, of Diamond Productions PEI. Serge handled much of the instrumentation, and is joined once again by Troy Engle, from Nashville, TN. Troy has been a member of their recording team since their first collaboration back in 2007. Jamie Graves joins them on piano. And Janet and Serge say that they were so pleased to once again have Meaghan Blanchard add her voice in harmony.

Janet performs throughout the Maritimes. For a full listing of performance dates, check out www.janetmcgarry.com.

Forever is the Love will be available locally at The Showcase at Confederation Centre, and Back Alley Music in Charlottetown, Stewart & Beck in Montague, and at The Wood Islands Lighthouse giftshop in Wood Islands.
