FEATURED QUOTE "Phyllis Sinclair's Fall 2012 show for Heartwood Folk Club was a treasure. We had never heard her in a complete concert before, and were blown away as we came to realize the depth of her talent and strength of her professionalism. In our opinion many of her songs are among the most well-crafted and poignantly beautiful in contemporary folk music. By the end of the evening we had come to know Ms. Sinclair as a woman so large of heart and soul that she transcends any boundaries or narrow definitions. She is firmly on our favourites list.
