Album Review

To clarify, Celtic Fiddle Festival is a band, not an event, made up of three fiddlers covering some of the spectrum of Celtic music — Ireland, France, and Quebec — along with guitarist Ged Foley, who's easily the hardest-working man on this disc, not only accompanying everyone, but also having a track to himself with the lovingly executed pipe tune "Sir Syndey Smith's March," adapted for guitar. Although there's plenty of power on the four tracks where everyone plays, there's far more subtlety in the duos which explores traditions a little more, especially "The Sligo Maid" set which commemorates the late Irish fiddler Tommy McGowan and features the splendid work of Kevin Burke, who's largely a legend these days himself. But everyone here is of the same high standard, and when the fiddlers have a chance to stretch out a little, it's a joy, and André Brunet works up quite a head of steam on the "Jig De Valcartier" set, while the "Gavottes Pourled" from Christian Lemaitre are a dancing joy. But then again, the whole album is a delight, especially if you're a fiddle fan.

Members of the group are Scotsman Johnny Cunningham, Irishman Kevin Burke, and Frenchman Christian...
