“Passing Through” is the sixth album by American folk and celtic singer Grace Griffith, who has been honored with multiple Wammie awards by the Washington Area Music Association. The album was released on iTunes on Jul 22, 2014 via Blix Street Records.
After battling Parkinson’s disease for more than 15 years, Grace was determined to record one more album. On July 22, 2014 she did just that again with Blix Street.
The tracks were mostly recorded a cappella, with generally sparse instruments added later. Grace’s former Hazlewood partner, Susan Graham White, added her voice to Grace’s new recording of Susan’s “Brigid’s Shield” and, for one more song, Hazlewood rides again! In addition to eight new recordings, the album includes 4 previously recorded but unreleased tracks that did not quite fit on their intended albums plus the bonus track, “Water Fire and Smoke.”
