ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Impressive for its rhythmic energy and deep emotion, this exquisitely crafted recording explores theme and variation in Scottish music, from the Early Music sound of “Old Age and Young” to the irresistible step-dancing rhythms of Cape Breton. Strathspey medleys build to fever pitch, explode into reel time, and continue to build. Highlands, Islands, and Lowlands are evoked with the haunting oceanic “Rowing from Isla to Uist” and fiery variations on “Katherine Oggie.” Every variation, every phrase, and every birl of “Crossing the Minch” has something new to say. Includes the inspiringly beautiful “Thug mi gaol do'n ghille ruadh (I fell in love with a red-haired lad).” Produced by Grammy winner Cathy Fink. U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion Elke Baker plays violin and viola and is joined by an all-star cast of supporting musicians: Myron Bretholz, bodhran; Robin Bullock, cittern and guitar; Liz Donaldson, piano and accordion; Ralph Gordon, bass; Ken Kolodner, hammered dulcimer; Marcy Marxer, percussion; Sue Richards, Celtic harp; Terry Traub, Cape Breton piano; Larry Unger, guitar.
“Baker's fiddle nearly throws off sparks.”-Washington Post
“Some of the greatest Scottish music to be heard anywhere”-TACSound
