Maria Sangiolo is a natural. When she was delivered the doctor told her parents, "Congratulations! You are now the proud folk of a little folkie." Well not really, but her songs are so rich in passion and pure in talent that she can easily be held in the same high regard as any of her influences. Her voice wraps up the listener in a security blanket of womanly warmth and heartfelt soul. The natural tremolo inflections of her voice undulate like ripples on a lake or fog on a river bank.
