ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alison Perkins and Nicolas Brown have been playing Irish traditional music on uilleann pipes, flute and fiddle together for close to a decade. As individuals, they have performed onstage at festivals and concerts across the U.S and Canada. Their debut recording, "All Covered With Moss" features old Irish tunes played in a fresh, bright way, and brings forth the beauty found in jigs, reels, and more. With this album, they are sharing their close musical partnership with Irish music fans around the world.

Alison and Nicolas are joined by Michael Gavin for three tracks on bouzouki. Alison plays fiddle and sings, and Nicolas plays uilleann pipes by Joe Kennedy and a flute by John Gallagher.

From the liner notes:
A few years ago, while reading O’Neill's Irish Minstrels and Musicians, I became interested in Sgt. James Early, a piper, and Sgt. John McFadden, a fiddler, musical partners, who were both members of the Chicago Police force with Capt. Francis O’Neill. Around this time, the Ward Archives in Milwaukee released digitized versions of 32 cylinders of music, which included Early and McFadden, fellow piper Sgt. Bernard Delaney, and Edward Cronin, a fiddler, piper and the original scribe for O'Neill and his 1903 collection. These recordings provided a fascinating glimpse of music in Chicago in the late 1800s and early 1900s. As Alison and I also play fiddle and pipes, it seemed that it would be interesting to learn some of their music. About half of the tunes on this CD come from these musicians, and all such tunes were sourced from O’Neill’s Music of Ireland, published in 1903, with comparison to the cylinders and his other works as noted. The rest of the tunes come from other musicians, recordings, books, and friends. -- Nick

"It is patently and beautifully obvious how much they play together and how thoughtful and generous they are with each other's playing, and the moments of perfect duplication are delightful because they come from that depth of rapport and love that characterizes everything they do. Those moments are like auditory high fives, celebrating togetherness."
-Internationally-renowned Irish musician Patrick Hutchinson
