Re: Ports of Call

While there are a few Scottish tunes here, Alasdair and Natalie show their interest in other musical traditions with entries from Norway, Sweden, Finland, France and Galicia. Several of Natalie’s compositions and some from Alasdair round out the offerings.

Very well done by talented and accomplished musicians (Brittany Haas joins on fiddle, track 7, and Dave Wiesler on piano, track 12). Just be warned that it is not the usual fare; remember that variety is the spice of life. I like it a lot.
