A rhythmically intense band with creativity
Aurora Celtic hails from the hills of West Virginia, and this album instructs us to file it under “Edgy Mountain Irish.” Thus, it’s probably not the type of music you’d want to put on when you wish to relax or unwind, and the emotionally charged (even somewhat frenetic at times) Celtic and Original music got me in a mood for housecleaning and dishwashing. There really aren’t too many albums that successfully motivate and inspire me such. However, when Michael Broderick (fiddle, mandolin), Alice Fleischman (flute, whistle, tenor banjo), Aaron Martin (guitar), and Karl Waite (percussion) take off on a set like the Roscommon Reel and Gravel Walk, you truly appreciate the charged-up energy and exuberance of these talented musicians. Their most leisurely rendered piece is Broderick’s own “Bella Luna Waltz” that still has plenty of snap. Half of the selections on “Edge of the World” are self-penned by Broderick, a prolific composer and arranger who holds a master’s degree in music performance and ethnomusicology. Having grown up in Japan, I especially enjoyed “Vega Shamisen,” a tune inspired by the Japanese Shamisen. Michael also challenged himself with compositions in 6/4 (Border Crossing) and 7/8 time signatures (Fortune Teller), as well as a set of jigs with Spanish and Gypsyjazz sensibilities (Sueno Jig, Hot Club Jig). “Siubhan Ni Dhuibhir” is a beautiful slow aire that is the genesis for one set, but Aurora Celtic’s distinctive stamp is back as they progress into a West Virginia fiddle tune (Elzic’s Farewell) and Irish reel (Farewell to Ireland). I found the mix a little guitar and percussion heavy on the latter and another Irish reel “Ashplant” presented later on the project, but that’s their signature “edgy mountain” sound. Aurora Celtic is clearly a rhythmically intense band, and world music aficionados with adventurous tastes should appreciate their creativity. (Joe Ross, Roseburg, Or.)
