iTunes Editors’ Notes

Hailing from Boston but already playing internationally, the young, award-winning McNally adheres to the Scottish and Cape Breton fiddle styles—known for their syncopation and driving sounds—on her debut album. Her playing has a light dancing quality; check out the opening “Waulking of the Fauld” to see what we mean. And McNally's strong narrative solo voice takes listeners along on a ride filled with twists and turns. Also seemingly bent on showcasing her compositional skills, McNally mixes original tunes with traditionals and songs by others, leaving listeners hard-pressed to figure out which is which on this program of instrumentals. Standout cuts include the adventurous “Bad Soup/Riff Raff and Widget” and the fiddle- and piano-driven “Jarvis Waltz.” While she gets strong support from guitarist Eric McDonald, pianist Neil Pearlman, bassist Corey DiMario, and accordion player Michael McLaughlin, McNally closes things out with her most dazzling individual turn on “Da Unst Bridal March”—but there's much to hear from her and her band before you get there.

Fabulous

Fresh and vibrant mix of old and new Celtic colors. Simply fabulous.

amazing

best fiddle music i have heard in a long time. amazing all i can say. can't wait to hear more

Fantastic fiddling

I listen to a lot of Celtic and fiddle music and I’ve got deep Scottish roots. I like fiddlers who attack the instrument with wild abandon and confidence. Let me tell you, Katie plays confident. And emotional and fiery and evocative and…authentic! This album is a joy from tune one to 10. You’ll get lots of up tempo, foot tapping fiddling with just the right mix of slower, contemplative sections within the well-paced sets. If you like Celtic fiddling, you will fall in love with the exciting and moving music of Katie McNally.

Flourish, Katie McNally
