Emotional and energetic upgrade of traditional celtic fiddle
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Firmly rooted in the rythyms and cadence of traditional celtic fiddling but with a strong contemporary flair that makes it highly accessible to newcomers like me. I felt like I was hearing Keith Jarrett play Scottish ballads on the violin. Some tunes are traditional 'jigs' but most have strong, even catchy, melody lines that make this a real pleasure to hear. Some of the best blend the melancholy of mexican folk music with the texture of great violins. Its well worth the requested $13."
Brilliant Fiddling

"This disk blends traditional Scottish folk sounds with a new element: bursts of energy, sometimes popping up at unexpected times. A mix of slow, emotional ballads and up-tempo tunes for jigs. Original compositions with strong melodies and great improvisation, played to perfection. Absolutely wonderful music (even for people who don't usually much like violin); the recording has a very warm sound."
Great Musician..GREAT BOD!

"Yes yes, we all saw Athena in Riverdance. She is a phenominal player, and quiet inventive with her celtic/scottish phrasing. This cd is a testament to her ambitions and promising future as a(hopefully) solo artist. Man...WHAT A BABE! If any red blooded male musician out there saw her in riverdance; he must have held his breath for the whole time she played!! Man, ive never seen a violinist look so good in leather pants! OWWW! The beautiful face is obvious, and the sex appeal is there. Athena, your good..but it helps even more that your freakin HOT. -#1 fan!!!"
