Music CD Review By Paul Gilbert
© November/00 By Paul Gilbert :
If you've read this ezine for any time, the name Charlotte Mair is one that appears a great
deal. In fact, she has a number of poems in this issue. I don't want to discuss her poetry
which has been done at greater length in the "Interview Issue", rather I want to review another
of her endeavours.
If you consider that just over two years ago, she started to
write poetry, it's amazing the mark she's made for herself
on the Internet. From the Internet to a chapbook, to awards,
she is having an effect on culture from her vantage point of
Richmond BC. Now she has returned to her love of music.
Recently Charlotte has released a 4 song CD of original
composed music, the disc is called "Silverado". To give you
a quick review, this CD features 4 country music torch
songs. Now I know we've all heard about new country, and if
you're expecting something that "Shania" would sing, or in
that style, you will be disappointed. There is no exposed
navel in this music. This is old style country, the "Patsy
Cline" school of hurtin' country.
If this is more to your liking, then it may be worth your while to go to
Charlotte's Web Advert and find out more information.
Television Interview Review with David Ingram
Television, talk show host: David Ingram recently requested ThE CaMbIe RoAd PoEt ,
better known as Charlotte Mair, to make her television debut at Roger’s Cable
Studios, in North Vancouver, BC. , Monday the 16th of October.
A portly gentleman offers a warm handshake and the interview begins with David singing
and coaxing Charlotte into a little song, The Tooth Song, which she had previously
written for Ingram’s young son . David and Charlotte then sang the afore-mentioned song,
in unison, to the tune of Jingle Bells. Definitely an ice-breaker.
After sharing a chorus or two, David then launched the question, "Who is Charlotte Mair?"
Holding guitar in hand, she then states, "Charlotte Mair is a 51 year old lady, singer-songwriter-poet who is trying her best to
figure out how to earn a living in this world."
Then David makes mention of the fact that Charlotte has accomplished much within the past two years, with the construction of
her own webpage, Charlotte’s Web Page, the self-publishing of her chapbook The First Fifty Years, a studio
recording and production of her four song CD,Silverado , then finally her signing of a contract with Kedco Studios,
where 101 of her new poems have been published on CDROM, so named Self Portrait.
David is quite impressed with the evident determination with which Charlotte has shown , by striving to achieve her goals and
holds up the chapbooks, the music CDs and CDROM of poetry to then show the world what he considers to be really great
A request for song was made and Charlotte started with a tune from her new CD called Easy. Applause rings out in the studio,
as the vocalist hits the final chord on a very successful performance.
On the whole, this was quite an interesting and entertaining interview, proving once again the stamina of the lady known as ThE
CaMbIe RoAd PoEt ... Charlotte Gai Mair.

|I enjoyed listening to Silverado. Charlotte's voice is sultry and mellow like Cher's, with a Country & Western feel, plus an unmistakable quality that is Charlotte's own unique style.|
