Kinloch’s Fantasy

“Featuring the wonderful fiddling of David Greenberg. Puirt a Baroque (poorst-a-ba-roke) is an ensemble that brings a new and delightful perspective to both Baroque and Scottish-Cape Breton musics. Daivid is one of the only violinists in the world who convincingly ”goes both ways“. Many of you will recognize him as a lead violinist for Tafelmusik or as the co-author of The Dungreen Collection (Traditional Celtic Violin Music of Cape Breton), a collaboration with his wife, Kate Dunlay).”
