Kevin and Ellen Mitchell

'What do I mean by "grand singers"? I mean people who have the vocal and interpretative flair to carry off 'big' songs, of many verses, with complex word schemes and dramatic stories, songs that demand attention of the listener.

Both Mitchell's have these qualities, Kevin with his high, rich, voice, forthright delivery and command of decoration, Ellen with her direct attack, though gentler tone, bearing a just a hint of Lizzie Higgins.'
Roy Harris
