TOP 100 REVIEWERon 21 January 2013
I suppose many will dismiss this as just "another folk album with lots of fiddle" Well think again, because this is actually a superb display of confidence and mastery of her chosen instrument by Ms Sweeney which, if it was performed by a blues guitarist would have accolades galore. The majority of tracks could be described as "traditional celtic" but the flourishes and verve that she brings to her playing make the music rise out of the ordinary. The country tinged "The Golden Fiddle" is the only track that doesn't quite work for me but this more than made up for with uptempo tracks such as "The mountain top" and a beautifully sung ballad "A place to be". The closing and title track is a stunning extended number which starts off as a traditional lament which appears to end in an uplifting jig but before you know it a sneaky piece of far eastern tinged playing brings matters to a close. A big hand should also be extended to Matheu Watson who provides some excellent guitar accompaniment and all in all this album provides further proof for me that whilst maintaining all that is good about such traditional folk music brilliant young talents such as these are pushing boundaries that most modern pop and rock acts can only dream about. If you like folk you will love this. If you THINK you don't like folk, listen to this and prepare to change your mind.

Great traditional fiddle playing by a maestro , some great tunes with excellent support from the star flute player, Mike McGoldrick. An album to cherish.
