Album Notes
Laurel Martin's sweet, lyrical fiddle style is rich with the warmth of Irish musical tradition. Her new recording, "Larks & Thrushes," includes a lovely array of traditional Irish dance tunes, colored by lilting rhythm, spirited phrasing and nuanced ornamentation. She is brilliantly accompanied by James Prendergast on guitar and Charlie Lennon on piano, and joined in duet tracks by Mary MacNamara (concertina), Mark Roberts (flute), Sarah Martin (viola, fiddle) and Nathaniel Martin (bass.)
Of her first solo CD release, "The Groves," the Boston Irish Reporter wrote:
"This is a soulful, unpretentious recording, and the fiddle sound is superb—a natural, warm, and acoustic sound in which you feel you’re right in the room with her, making for a recording that is wholly personal and welcoming."
