|Review:||This debut from another Young Folk Award winner reveals a Scottish fiddler rich beyond her years with a huge technique and a style already richly individualistic. A singing tone is married to adventurous rhythmic exploration, to take her Highland-rooted repertoire up musical glens and straths rarely travelled. If her 'Lochaber Dance' invites terpsichorean trouble by setting the reel in a tricky 5/4, the air 'Tha Mi Tinn Leis a'Ghaol' will bring a smile to the folk police. Sparklingly produced by Chris Stout, the CD boasts pianist James Ross, Barry Reid on guitar and celebrated accordionist Luke Daniels...Norman Chalmers|
