Product Description

Mike, who plays fiddle, is one of an entire family of musicians from Morayshire. For many years The Vass Family appeared at traditional music festivals around Scotland. Dave also has a vast musical experience and is an outstanding instrumentalist, here he plays guitar and bouzouki. Another excellent addition to the Greentrax catalogue

Format:Audio CD
This is an immensely enjoyable album from two members of the award winning Scottish band Malinky, doing a spot of moonlighting.
Mike Vass's fiddle playing is exhilarating throughout, whether attacking a set of stirring dance tunes or on more lyrical pieces such as my personal favourite, Diarmaid Moynihan's 'Covering Ground'. Throughout the fiddle is perfectly supported by Dave Wood's tasteful guitar. One of my favourite guitarists, his playing is always interesting, melodic and rhythmically solid without ever being obtrusive.
The album is entirely instrumental , with the exception of a moving rendition of 'Hills of Donegal' beautifully sung by Damien O'Kane. Damien also adds his driving tenor banjo to some of the tune sets to great effect. Other accompaniment is ably supplied by James Lindsay on bass and Steve Fyvie on drums.
Like all the best albums, this one takes a couple of listens before it really grabs you. But once these tunes get hold of you and the sheer brilliance of the musicianship gets you, you will return to it again and again.
Definitely one of the folk albums of the year, go on and treat yourself.
