Singer-Songwriter and Pianist, Shauna Burns,
Announces New Release: “Scarborough Fair,”
Shauna Burns, the seasoned Celtic inspired artist, is known for enchanting listeners with her
soothing vocals, sweeping piano solos, and spiritually healing music.
Salt Lake City, UT, Sep 29, 2017 - Shauna Burns, the seasoned Celtic inspired artist, is known for
enchanting listeners with her soothing vocals, sweeping piano solos, and spiritually healing music. The
singer-songwriter and pianist is set to release her cover single of an old-time classic, “Scarborough Fair,”
on October 6, 2017 through the label Red Rock Music.
Shauna Burns rejuvenates “Scarborough Fair” with her own Celtic spin to this English traditional ballad.
Singing the female’s reply to the male’s request to prove true love, Shauna brings her own perspective
to this classic tale. Her intricate yet, delicate piano melodies whisk through the entire piece. Shauna’s
crystalline and haunting vocal performance is laced between engaging threads and a Celtic harp that
broaden the dreamy effect of the song.
“I had been spending a lot of time in green lush places lately and I started to imagine the woman in this
song walking through the landscape, says Shauna Burns. I heard her voice so clearly and I went to the
piano and started to tinker out the first bit of the song.”
“Scarborough Fair” highlights the tale of a young man who instructs the listener to tell his past lover to
complete a series of impossible tasks, in order for him to take her back. Typically the song is performed
as a duet, with the women ordering the man to perform equally impossible tasks, as well. In the brand
new version, Shauna sings “ask him to find me an acre of land, between the salt water and the seasand.”
Shauna continues, “I imagine this couple is probably having a bump in their relationship and are trying
to get each other to do the impossible task to win back their love... but I sensed at the end both of them
want to forgive, want to move forward, but perhaps their pride is in the way? I felt when I was
recording “Scarborough Fair” that ‘her’ soft vocals maybe gave the game away... maybe just a touch. I
personally think true love prevails at the end.”
The piano, keyboard, vocals and musical arrangements were done by Shauna Burns. Caroline Kemper
ReidReynoso performed on the Celtic harp, and Dee Kei Waddell on the double bass and keyboard. The
song was produced by Shauna Burns and James Clark, and was engineered/mastered/co-produced by
Dee Kei Waddell.
