This is a wonderful album of Scottish fiddle music (and one Scandi tune). Entirely solo, just fiddle and a little bit of Hardanger fiddle. Check out track 5, ‘Are you always pleased’, to hear some great rhythmic strathspeys that’ll get your head-nodding, with lots of bird-like note-runs; really beautiful stuff. If I were to make a criticism, it would only be that there’s a few too many slow airs, which skews the balance of the album alittle, even if they’re all very pretty in themselves. Would have liked to have heard a few more tracks like ‘When you’ve hooked him hold him fast’. Still, a very very good album indeed.
