Although its been out for a year now, this album's tunes truely represent the amazing tonal qualitiesand variety of Aly's fiddle playing and Phil's creativity and skill in tune writing and playing. The evocative By Dundas Loch is one of my favorites...close your eyes and listen to the combinations of the two instruments blending and complimenting each other as you are taken on a journey....in your minds eye, just be there. The combination of styles throughout the album will tingle your senses and take you to far away places...the gently lilting Austrian/Norwegian Hardanger Fiddle style Waltz for Father is most acceptable, even to an ear steeped in Irish and Scottish music. Hunter's Hill and C M Hall will be known by many and given the Aly and Phil treatment these two tunes are a fine example of key changes making a real difference for the listener and not just self indulgent showing off. The Jacobites would surely have approved of the White Rose waltz , showing the versatility and amazing sounds building from a fairly simple melody. Wonderful exponents of tune construction at its finest. Phil's tripplet style on the Queensferry Cooper and Aly's slips on the fiddle in Derry Cunningham's Jig make a fine end to a great album, a portrait indeed of the skills, knowledge and virtuosity of two of our finest players today.
