I have all of Natalie's cd's, and can heartily recommend all of them. "My Roots Are Showing" is probably my second favorite of her CDs. The traditional side of Cape Breton and Scottish music is most appealing to me, and this CD (with "Fit As A Fiddle" -- my favorite) is a fantastic example of the genre and Natalie's virtuoso playing. If you are looking for experiments with country, jazz and pop, "Blueprint", "In My Hands" or "No Boundaries" are better bets. Although the "tunes" (if you have heard Natalie pronounce that word with her wonderful Cape Breton accent, you will understand why I put that in quotes) on My Roots are Showing are traditional through and through, the jigs and reels really rock! I can't help but try to sing along whenever I listen to this music, which is no mean feat as all of the tunes are instrumental.
