Some Melodious Sonnet

This young Oregonian fiddler has made her second album even better than her first- Originally studying classical violin, then Texas-style contest fiddling, Hanneke credits Alisdair Fraser for converting her to Scottish fiddling. She is a powerful composer in her own right, and her mastery of the violin shines through every note- she has an incredible sense of style- her phrasing and dynamice are very original and absolutely appropriate to the music. If you have never heard her, you are in for a treat- and if you get a chance to see her live, jump at it and hang on to your chair- you’re in for a wild,passionate and joyous ride!

Last 14 words of your statement…

Hmm..Is that a promise!

Well said, Mandolala. Hanneke also is a delightful person to talk to, with a great sense of fun.
Another thing to listen for on this album is the playing of Rushad Eggleston, a ridiculously talented young man who can seemingly play anything — Celtic, bluegrass, Delta blues — on the cello.
