ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From the New Country by na Fidleiri is this groups debut recording. Featuring traditional Irish melodies played on violins with backup featuring piano, guitar, banjo, and percussion, Na Fidleiri performs dances, airs and songs from the Celtic tradition arranged for string orchestra to show the many facets of this lovely tradition. This recording goes beyond the usual "session" environment of virtuoso soloists "jamming" together, and enters into a world of tightly orchestrated arrangements that bring out the subtleties of this fine literature.
Na Fidleiri (Irish for "the Fiddlers") is a group of about 20 young fiddlers ages 9 to 16 based in Charleston, SC. The ensemble studies primarily the performance, history, style, and theory of traditional Irish folk music, including dances, airs, and songs. Members of the group are also classically trained and have anywhere from 1 to 9 years of playing experience. The group rehearses weekly in downtown Charleston and holds auditions every year. As older players go on to college and other endeavors, new members are auditioned and integrated into the existing ensemble.
Na Fidleiri has performed with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra in a performance described as "a night of first rate entertainment, full of Celtic pathos and toe tapping energy". (Charleston Post & Courier) Na Fidleiri has also performed at the International Festival in Florence, SC, the Augusta Irish Festival in Augusta, GA, First Night Charleston, The Scottish Games in Charleston, the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, and the opening ceremonies at the Special Olympics in 2002.

I originally bought this CD for my six year old son who loves "Drowsy Maggie"...I have since become enamored with the entire CD. Highly recommended for anyone who loves and enjoys good music. Thank you for such a wonderful, uplifting listening experience.

Fast paced celic traditional music, very well done.
I have been following celtic music about 3 years now, and this is one of the best CD's I have. It is generally fast paced, definitely celtic traditional sound and original. Excellent CD.

WOW!
An incredibly pleasant listening experience. Terrific production values, extraordinarily clean recording, and to think that the musicians are mostly younger performers - outstanding! Great, toe-tapping, lose-yourself-in-the-music album.

This CD is fun to hear, and has great music played by talented people.
This CD has a number of very enjoyable instrumental tunes, with "Drowsy Maggie/Farewell to Ireland" being one of the best I've heard in years. All of the tracks are interesting, the music grows on you, and the fiddle playing is fast and accurate, and somehow classical. I think the musicians had a lot of fun making this CD, and I am having a lot of fun listening to it.
