If you saw the classic film O Brother, Where Art Thou? you will recall three very young girls singing "In The Highways". Although the Peasall Sisters didn't actually appear in the film, they did provide the singing on that song. The Sisters went on to appear on one of the Gaither Homecoming videos/DVDs 'Church In The Wildwood'. Apparently 'Home To You' is their second album, produced by John Carter Cash, son of the late great Johnny! The three sisters Sarah, Hannah and Leah play guitar, mandolin and fiddle and are very much continuing the tradition of music from the O Brother movie. This is basically a country album, combining a collection of mainly older country songs like Roy Acuff's "Freight Train Blues", 'The Carter Family's classic "I Never Will Marry" and the beautiful "Fair And Tender Ladies". The Irish song "Carrick Fergus" is a bit of an oddity. Gospel is well represented by "The Angel Band" originally recorded by The Stanley Brothers and featured in the O Brother film. "The Old Account" I remember from the Johnny Cash LP in the early '60s, 'Songs Of Our Soil', and this fine album concludes with "Where No One Stands Alone" which was on Alison's Krauss's gospel album. To sum up, this is a gem of an album from a fine trio of young country ladies, who now sing very well together and notes from the album sleeve leave no one in doubt to their adherence to our Lord Jesus Christ.
