Parents Choice Silver Award-Brighter Than Fireflies


Lowe's strong, melodic voice narrates her songs of vignettes and slices of everyday life. She tells tales of a very rhythmic rabbit in the jazzy “Miles BeBoppin Hoppin,” while she employs some lovely marimba on the light, island reggae of “If I Were I Bird.” Lowe offers consistently intelligently themed songs, which will capture and charm children's imaginations.

Amy Lowe's contemporary folk-style music will remind many adults of songs by artists such as Amy Rigby, The Indigo Girls, and Dar Williams.

Amy Lowe and Megan Wells  

 Every now and then, along comes an entirely unexpected treat. Who would have thought that a recounting of the story of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 could be so enthralling? In their recording aimed at age 8 and up, Lowe and Wells skillfully combine commentary, theatrics, music and history in an eloquent portrait of a city’s devastation, hope and renewal. By Lynne Dalton Heffley


Review:   A sterling mix of music, commentary, theater and history as Amy Lowe and Megan Wells recount the story of The Great Chicago Fire of 1871. First, they dispatch the legend, captured in that catchy song ("One Dark Night") that vilified Mrs. O'Leary and her lantern-kicking cow for the raging inferno that destroyed an entire city. They paint a vivid picture of a city that grew far too fast, with far too little planning and they sing chillingly of the "Mud, Wood, Drought, Blunder & Wind," conditions that led to the devastation. Most poignantly, Lowe and Wells interweave their haunting song, "Listen to the Wind," with eloquent testimony from actual eyewitnesses to the tragedy. The pair wind up this well-researched, beautifully performed piece of historical, musical theater on an uplift, commemorating the losses and the hardy souls who survived to rebuild their lives and their city.
