"An Ardmore Afternoon" will take your mind and emotions back to a place of nostalgia, wonder, innocence, love, and loss while permitting you to remain firmly rooted in the reality of your present moment. Enjoy the 28 years of songwriting and performing experience by singer-songwriter don bridges, second-term President of the Songwriters Association of Washington, that goes into this 13-song potpourri of original tunes, with styles ranging from folk (An Ardmore Afternoon, Under New Construction, A Good Knight Story) to Pop/Country (I Need You, In the Comfort of My Arms) to Smooth Jazz (Maybe You Might) to Rock (Anger Junkie Blues, Brown Springs at Night) to Bluegrass (At the Alamo, The Holy Spirit Came, Three-quarter Moon) to Inspirational (Love, Fly Polyphemus). The artist's lyrical insights into the hopes, dreams, dilemmas, and regrets of daily life will provide you with plenty of food for thought as you sing along to the catchy melodies, marvel at the superb skills of several dozen inspired musicians and backing vocalists, and bask in the wonderful production of eight-time Washington Area Music Association Producer of the Year Marco Delmar that serve as the hallmarks of this fine recording. With first-rate photography by Lawrence Ruggeri and Catherine Steiner and excellent graphics by Audrey Engdahl, this product is a superbly packaged collection of great tunes, one that you'll find yourself playing over and over long after you've memorized every word to every song.
