Elsa Lemaitre

Elsa has recently released a CD "Time Wears Awa'"to celebrate some of the songs, the people & the places that have been significant in shaping and enriching her involvement with traditional song over the past 40 years and more.

 Each song represented here carries a host of memories of those heart-warming occasions when song has united us all.

This CD is dedicated to the memory of her husband Charlie,and also her father, David Stevens, both of whom were unfailing in their interest, support and encouragement.
