This CD was not what I expected in the least. I saw the CD cover, and not having listened even a little bit, expected old fashioned Celtic folk music. Two tracks live up to that expectation.. #6, The Haughs of Cromdale (by far the best track on the CD) and #1, Fhear a Ohata (also good). These tracks are what make the CD worth buying, if it is at all. But for these songs, you might as well not buy the CD. Those two tracks are by the same artist, Rebecca Pidgeon (by no coincidence), and I would recommend buying Pidgeon's CD "The Four Marys".. which features these two songs, and has a number of other pleasant songs. The two other tracks I like on the CD are #s 4, "Short a Penny" and 12, "High Ground". Track 4 gives me the image of Beggars walking the street in 19th Century Dublin... and Track 4 might as well be a pop song. The main thing I noticed most on this CD is that, excepting tracks 6 and 1, these songs sound more like Country Western/Jazz than Celtic. The vocals are all great, but the lack of Celtic instruments is very dissapointing. Most tracks have piano and bass... which by themselves don't sound Celtic at all. So again, If you are looking for old fashioned Celtic Folk, you're better off with Rebecca Pidgeon's CD than wasting money on this one.
