Autoharp: Why Does The Wind

When British pop singer Tracey Thorn was recording her album “Love and its Opposite,” she chose a relatively low tech instrument, the electric autoharp, as an accent on her tune “Why Does the Wind.” Drowning in a sea of sequenced electronic keyboards and drums, the autoharp is a nice addition to this song. Thorn plays the instrument on this CD where it appears on several songs.

Thorn wrote “Why Does the Wind” as well as most of the songs that appear on the CD. The selections tell the story of life after 40. The CD was released in 2010 and only made it to #144 on the US album charts.
