Roger Landes, ace citternist and founder of Zoukfest, is joined by John Whelan (accordion), Zan McLeod (guitar) and several others in this fabulous debut recording which highlights the cittern as lead melody instrument. Roger’s command of the instrument is breath-taking and his interpretation of Jerry Holland’s set to close the album may just be even more exciting than the original. Very interesting and informative booklet included which outlines the history of the bouzouki from ancient times to its present rebirth in Irish music.
I bought this album from Rogen in New Mexico a year or two ago. Love it, and have played it on my radio show. Hope to hear more recordings from him.
