“In singing ballads, spirituals and the sacred folk hymns of her Celtic and American ancestors, Marta Burton demonstrates her incredible ability to mesmerize audiences with the pure beauty of her voice and person. The moment she walks on stage and begins to sing, a hush falls over the listeners, as if none within the sound of her voice even dares to breathe. Not until the last note fades do those listeners realize that they have been spellbound, transported into another world from which they are reluctant to return.”—Marilyn Arnold
