ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
WINNER of the 2008 Canadian Folk Music Award, YOUNG PERFORMER of THE YEAR, Emma Beaton is a young inventive folk cellist, vocalist, and banjo player from Qualicum Beach, Canada. She has performed across North America and Scotland with notable musicians such as Tristan & Tashina Clarridge, Jeremy Kittel, Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, Brittany Haas, Bruce Molsky, Simon Chrisman, Laurie Lewis, Back of the Moon, as a part of the Hanneke Cassel Band and as a soloist with the San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers. Emma has appeared as part of a a feature act at the Aberdeen International Youth Festival, Ceol Mor, as well as part of a duo with Gillian Frame on STV (Scottish Television). She has also performed at the Boston Celtic Music Festival as part of the Deadly Sins and with the New Tyme Sisters.

Celtic Chaos is the Vancouver Island based band that Emma performs with when in her home territory. They have played to sold-out houses all over Vancouver Island, and are in demand, not only for their musical talents, but also for their infectious joie de vivre.

This CD takes the immense talents of Emma as a vocalist, cellist, banjo player, and arranger and delivers a delightful collection of Appalachian, and Celtic songs and ballads (a cappella, voice and banjo & whole ensemble) and memorable instrumentals. Special guests on the album include Laura Cortese (from Boston, fiddler extraordinaire) and Gillian Frame (of Scottish supergroup, Back of the Moon).

"Pretty Fair Maid nearly lifted me off of the ground. I listened to it this morning. Edelweiss had me leaning back in my seat wondering how I could live my life so that I always felt like the way the song made me feel. The entire CD is phenomenal. Edelweiss blew me away. The arrangements are sophisticated, and the band has a unique sound. The music makes me pretty useless...I can't do a thing but listen.
Congratulations.
What a beautiful set of tunes. The band is tight, accomplished, sensitive, fun. They must have such a good time playing together! I can't wait to see Celtic Chaos live. When is their Northern CA tour? Congratulations."
