Voted Best New Album of 2011 by Global Village!
“Just occasionally, something joyously bonkers and genuinely creative enough to reaffirm one’s faith in the music industry all over again comes along, and this month, this disc is The One for me; my latest ‘happy disc.’…Bonkers but brilliant.” Recorder Magazine (UK)
Recorded in April 2009 and January 2011, the eighteen tracks of this CD run the gamut from evocative laments to sizzling dance tunes, and include a few new charts by members of the band.
‘…This is world music for north of the 49th parallel with influences from Ireland, Scandinavia, and my favorite piece, the Vienna of Brahms. The musicianship is outstanding and the Ensemble plays with joy and wit. Even my children like this one.’ (On-line customer review)
