Re: Brass Lassie
The brain-child of Minnesota flute/whistle/concertina/small-pipes player [ and singer ] Laura MacKenzie - a 10-piece band featuring flute, fiddles, piano, percussion, bass and a brass section. I haven’t ever been much of a fan of brass in traditional music, but this works - I’ve never heard it done better.
More to say on this later.
PS - one of the best recordings I’ve heard this year, and I hear a lot because of the radio programme I’m involved in. We had this as our joint "Album of the Month" in November - equal to Matt Molloy’s latest release, so that is an indication of how good I think this CD is.
