"Classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein and country-folk singer Tift Merritt have collaborated on a joint album called Night — and it's a triumph of creative risk" - writes Martin Chilton of The Guardian.

Musical collaborations can sometimes be tired sparring sessions, but classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein and folk-country singer-songwriter Tift Merritt have worked on an album, called Night, that is an understated creative triumph.

Their backgrounds, and musical skills, are very different. Dinnerstein, 40, is a New Yorker, and a graduate of The Juilliard School. She was a winner of the Astral Artist National Auditions and has received the National Museum of Women in the Arts Award. Merritt, 38, is a self-taught guitarist and singer from Austin, Texas, who learned to play by ear, occasionally by listening to Percy Sledge.
