Album Review

Reviewed 2016-10-03
Five-piece multinational Canadian and Scottish Celtic band playing harp, accordion, fiddle, flute, vocals; nice variety of Celtic type music with a modern flair; electric harp flourishes and accordion sustains; sweet impassioned singing with Celtic lilts; wonderful fresh sound!

No FCC's; favorite tracks: 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

1- Drilling (4:05) – medley of Shuffle/The Drilling Reel/Aye Right-- Irish, Cape Breton, & Scottish

2-Peter's Dream (4:29) – vocal about demise of fishing industry on P.E.I.

*3- Hurry Up and Wait (4:10) – medley of reels; switches gear midway and speeds up; nice rocking beat

4 – Set You Free (2:41) –Lively vocal with nice instrumental backing

*5- Get Me Through December (7:04) – haunting vocal; title speaks for itself; resonant, evocative accompaniment

**6-Wrong House (5:12) – inspired by a true story of a band member going to the wrong house in the wee hours; nice harp intro; very pretty combo of sounds segues to a very fast reel

*7-Trouble in the Fields (5:28) – Nancy Griffith song about farmers trying to hang on; strong accompaniment to powerful lyrics

*8-Glorious, Eh? (4:44) – pretty harp intro with accordion coming in strong followed by fiddle; fabulous medley of “Carousel Prime/Editor's Favorite/The Eel in the Sink/Homage to Rooney”

*9-Do You Love an Apple? (5:51) – slow vocal; waltz time; sounds a little French; accordion as bandoneon

*10-Jiggery-Polka-Ry (3:19) - medley of three tunes written by women; heavy duty fiddling; fast

**11-Canadee-1-0 (3:54) – catchy vocal of seaman's girlfriend sneaking on board his ship

12-Get Me Through December (radio edit) (4:49) – shorter reprise of earlier song
