Excellent Irish Fiddle Festival Recording
Michael | Placerville, CA USA | 12/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you want to hear Irish fiddle by itself or in combination with other fiddles, or wish to practice along with a strong recorded fiddle lead, this is a remarkable CD. When you are playing a strong and only lead in a tune, it takes exceptional skill to not make the little errors that get missed playing in musical groups or jam sessions. This CD demonstrates this uncommon precision.

I have spent many hours and drank more than a few gallons of the good stuff to lubricate my playing practicing guitar, bouzouki and bodhran to these tracks. This CD was recorded in 1991 at the "Fiddlesticks Festival" organized by the Traditional Music Society of University College Cork, and includes well known fiddle players within Ireland, such as the legendary Tommy Peoples. There is also the lovely Mairead ni Mhaonaigh and Ciaran Tourish of Altan contributing several tracks. The well knowned Glackin family of Dublin is represented by brothers Seamus and Kevin. I would especially recommend the first track duet, "The Boys of Malin, The Gravel Walks" reels for amazing double lead and counterpoint playing. The last track is very spirited, the typical everyone on stage at the end of a concert, "The Wise Maid, McCloud's Reel, The Boys of Malin."

If you love the old tunes in the old way with "naked fiddle" or the small groups that would play in pubs and at family gatherings, you will love this CD.
