ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SKYE: A Contemporary Celtic Quartet

Skye's 1999 release is a 53-minute-long recording, entitled "It's About Time." The CD contains a fine sampling of the band's vocal and instrumental repertory. Many of the instrumental sets on this album are newly composed in a traditional style, and were inspired by Michael and Julia's pet rabbits including Hippity, Pele, Captain Jack and Rufty. Skye is particularly well-known for its polished sound, its intricate and sophisticated arrangements, and its stunning vocal harmonies.

Skye has been together and based in Eugene, Oregon, for over fourteen years. They have performed extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest, gaining a loyal following wherever they appear. While more often taking center stage, in their many years together Skye has also opened for such notable artists as Dougie MacLean, Solas, Natalie MacMaster, and Martin Hayes.

The band presents an exciting blend of vocal and instrumental pieces, many of them traditional, some of them arrangements of contemporary songs by other celtic artists. Still others are newly composed in a traditional style by members of the band. To every piece - whether traditional or newly composed - Skye imparts a fresh feel with imaginative, intricate, and energetic instrumental arrangements and compelling vocal harmonies.

The members of Skye heard on "It's About Time" include Michael Bardossi (fiddle); Michael Kevin Daly (guitar, mando-guitar, bouzouki, and vocals); Julia Heydon (vocals, recorders, fiddle, and guitar); and Lexy Wellman (vocals, bodhran, doumbec, and guitar).
