Album Notes
Melinda Crawford, Scottish fiddle; Dan Perttu, keyboard; Carolyn Koebel, percussion

"Melinda Crawford's 'The Sheiling Braes' is a recording through which her enthusiasm for the genre fairly flies off the disc. The racks display high energy and she has the fiddle 'speakin' the Gaelic' very well indeed. You'll want to listen to this one many times."
~Dr. John Turner, Ten-time National Scottish Fiddling Champion; Founder/Director, The Jink and Diddle School of Scottish Fiddling

“… an excellent recording you have here! It is energetic, enthusiastic, and a real pleasure in which to listen! I'd say you have a winner on your hands with 'Sheiling Braes'!"
~ Diane Byrnes, “Echoes of Erin” radio show
