This is a brilliant recording of the Scottish fiddle music. Jennifer Wrigley, Allan Henderson, and Julia Legge are young fiddlers from different parts of the country, who had never played together before. It was the producer Simon Thoumire’s idea to give them a chance to record a album after a short time for rehearsal. Needless to say, their playing is really fresh and spontaneous.
This recording is full of popular fiddle tunes in Scotland, though it includes some fiddlers’ own compositions. It’s a great album to sample the Scottish fiddle music.
