Lindeman, of course, is her own woman, something she demonstrates via “Traveler”, “Everything I Saw”, and “Yarrow and Mint”. At 28 minutes, this may be a sliver of an album, but it’s still a damned fine sliver to have and a genuine folk album from an artist who seems capable and comfortable working in just about any musical idiom she wants.
