Order Number kbgfcd2005
Retail Price from indie-cds.com site A$10.00:
An album of pure delight as one of the foremost fiddle players of the day in the area of Irish traditional fiddle music is accompanied by undoubtedly one of the finest guitarists in traditional music circles. Kevin Burke has a long pedigree with bands such as the Bothy Band, and both he and Ged Foley (ex The House Band) are members of Patrick Street. Burke's fiddle style is relaxed, masterful, never showy, always full of lyrical beauty, and Foley's guitar is a perfect and precise counterpoint that lifts the music. On Ged Foley's songs, Kevin Burke plays accompanist with equal grace. No CD collection should lack this disc. "Burke imparts a rhythmic intensity that is remarkably powerful...a superior instrumentalist in any idiom...impressively virtuosic"
- The New York Times. "Burke's fiddle playing has a sweetness of tone and a purity of sound that makes it unmistakable."
- Folk Roots
