Fly Like Swallows

by Allison Lupton

A lovely voice and a killer band breathe new life into the tunes on the album, and instill a traditional grace in the newer pieces. The songs are imbued with the sheer joy the band had playing them.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The band's sophisticated arrangements surround Allison's voice and flute like a warm blanket on a cold winter night."
Tom Druckenmiller, Sing Out!

"A lovely voice and a killer band breathe new life into the trad tunes on the album, and instill a traditional grace in the newer pieces. The songs are imbued with the sheer joy the band had playing them, the voice speaking of sweet wistfulness and sweeter celebration."
David Francey, Laker Music

"Fly Like Swallows" unveils the group's true musical identity. The album's sound is a combination of Celtic and old-time flavours mixed with a hint of Ottawa Valley and French-Canadian fiddling - a true Canadian sound. The songs are wonderfully structured with flowing melodic arrangements that carry the words and stories with ease and grace. The instrumentals are great. Jigs, reels and waltzes offer a nice contrast to the album's songs without swaying too far from home."
Matt Carter, Penguin Eggs
