By Ernest Barteldes

Published April 27, 2007

Here the Scottish mandolinist of the Occasionals is joined by bouzouki player Alec Finn, mandolinist Luke Plumb and guitarist Kris Dever to play an assortment of tunes that celebrate their Scottish and Irish heritage. The result is a set of songs with a relaxed feel and reminiscent of times long gone by. All the musicians are highly accomplished, and they take on a wide variety of tunes. The album opens with a traditional Irish jig, but there is much more on the menu—the players also adapted music originally composed for bagpipes (“Ronald Cheape Of Tirororan”), more obscure songs that date from the 18th Century, and even Mixtec music (José Lópes Alavés’s “Cancíon Mixteca”). This is definitely an album for fans of the Celtic genre, but it is also a fine introduction to the world of traditional music—or an alternative to the omnipresent “chill” sounds in lounges around town.
