Smooth Tunes

The Gin Mill, 300 Water Street, Augusta, Maine


The Plaid Dragonflies are a duo starring bass playing Zardus and guitar strumming Val Bennett. The self-titled effort draws from musicians in the Hallowell area to make for an upbeat crop of tunes.  The lyrics are classically direct in many tunes, touching on familiar themes to rock listeners. The music and the wonderful vocal work by the two ladies pumps up the album. The first tune, Crossroad To Lovin' kicks the album off with a bang in a Bonnie Raitt inspired hard-driving blues number.” - Sam Shain
