5.0 out of 5 stars keeping the tradition alive, 20 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Cara Dillon (Audio CD)
There has been much hype about Cara Dillon culminating in her double award at this year's radio 2 folk awards. On the evidence of this album the hype is totally deserved. The voice is indeed a beautiful one but what stands out for me from this record are the magnificent arrangements and the beautiful rolling piano of Sam Lakeman. The tone is set by the first track, the winner of 'best traditional track 2002, 'Black is the Colour'. It is a tremendous performance, quite exquisite and transposes traditional material into vital 21st century music. It is really hard to pick out favourite tracks but 'Donald of Gelencoe', 'Craigie Hill' 'She's like the Swallow'are tremendous arrangements, 'Blue Mountain River' bodes well for more self-penned material in the future but there are no duff tracks here. This is a group of young musicians wonderfully keeping the flame of the tradition burning brightly. It's brilliant stuff. Buy it!
