Great playing and great composing
I find so much to enjoy in this album of mostly original tunes.
The first thing that struck me was the playing - brilliant fiddle and accordion (yes, accordion!) playing: their arrangements ensure that the two instruments complement each other well.
The next thing - especially after a few listenings - is how creative and subtle the tunes are. And the more I listen to them, the more I find to enjoy.
I discovered this duo at the Celtic Colours festival in Cape Breton in the fall of 2008 - and I’ve listened to something off this album almost every day since. I can’t get enough of this music.
Finally, I’ve learnt 5 of the tunes so far and hope to learn more. This is an inspiring album.
