‘Between Up and Down’ - The first solo release from ‘Trouble in the Kitchen’ and Melbourne based fiddle player Ado Barker
Released little over a month ago, ‘Between Up and Down’ is the first solo fiddle album from Melbourne fiddler Ado Barker. This CD has been highly anticipated since the last release from Aussie trad band, ‘Trouble in the Kitchen’, of which Ado was a founding member.
Joining Ado on the album is Dublin born bouzouki player Ruairi McGorman. Currently residing in Australia, Ruairi comes a small list of individuals to have been tutored by master accompanist Alec Finn. Also on the album is another Melbourne resident, Dougal Adams. Originally from Perth, Dougal adds his sensitive and flowing concert flute playing to a number of tracks.
