CD Reviews

Rags, Reels & Airs by Dave Swarbrick (& 2 mates)
Jeremy Gray | High Wycombe, Bucks, UK | 11/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a lovely, and large collection of tunes, showing Dave's inimitable style at a time when he was just starting to get really prominent. He stuns with his fluid, Slavic-influenced fiddle playing on both regular and 8-string violins, a tricky master of English, Scottish and Irish melodies. This is interspersed with delightful mandolin playing, while the accompanists, both masters in their own right, fill out the arrangements complimenting Dave's own earthy rhythmic feel. There is a variety here, from classics like 'The Blackbird' to gems such as 'Pineapple Rag'. This is staple diet material for any folk collector - a worthy choice that has stood and will stand up to the merciless test of time."
