Album Review

Canadian superstar fiddler and dancer Natalie MacMaster's tenth full-length recording doesn't deviate much from her usual formula, but considering the fact that her "usual formula" consists of filtering traditional Celtic music through the open-ended sieves of jazz, rock, country and Latin, the results are far from predictable. MacMaster is a peerless player, and here she starts things off with a fiery opener, the appropriately titled "Volcanic Jig," which sets the tone for Yours Truly. Backed by a small army of instrumental masters, airs like "Farewell to Peter" and traditional sets such as "David's Jig: David's Jig/Valerie Pringles' Reel" are precise examples of contemporary Celtic music, but with the exception of a horrifying version of "Danny Boy" sung by Michael McDonald (seriously, you lose a whole star for that kind of thing), it's when MacMaster takes the genre out for a walk that things get really interesting. The jaunty "Flea as a Bird" throws a little country and ragtime into the mix, "Cape Classico" balances the rigidity of classical violin with the bright lilt of Irish fiddle, and the full-on Celtic rock of "Matt and Nat's" gives the collection some serious cajones.

Customer Reviews

Awesome

Very skillfully and beautifully played. Very fun to play along as she has the sheet music to some of the songs on her website. All the songs are well done but my favorite is Farewell to Peter.

Amazing

What an great album! She is an amazing artist! We saw her in Albuquerque summer of 2012 at the rio grande zoo. She was 7 or 8 months pregnant but still dancing and jumping around! What an amazing artist and performer our Canadian neighbors have! Canada should be proud!
