As for Taggart, his new release "Falling All the Way," has a more rootsy and jaunty sound, flavored by guitars, mandolin, banjo and dobro. Like soul mate [Mary Sue Twohy], though, Taggart is a smart, economical songwriter. He also has a knack for getting right to the troubled heart of a matter, as the CD's title track and "What Tomorrow Will Be Missing" reveal. All is not sorrow and anguish, though. In a calm, somewhat husky voice that occasionally brings John Hartford to mind, Taggart conjures other moods as well, with a thoroughly smitten love song ("County Fair/Apple Blossom") and a vivid portrait of a first and lasting impression ("Missing You All My Life)."
