Celtic Tapestry: Contemporary & Traditional

All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
The two discs that comprise Celtic Tapestry have been assembled from the vaults of Maggie's Music, a label focusing on what commentators have referred to "chamber folk." What is chamber folk? One enjoyable example is Bonnie Rideout's "Miss Gordon of Park/ Craigellachie Lassies/The Honourable Mrs. Drummond of Perth's Delight." A lead fiddle, backed by light accompaniment, weaves a series of instrumental pieces together seamlessly. The small ensemble delivers these instrumentals so gently, pleasantly, that it would be quite easy to imagine these selections slipped between two classical quartets during an evening concert.

All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
The two discs that comprise Celtic Tapestry have been assembled from the vaults of Maggie's Music, a label focusing on what commentators have referred to "chamber folk." What is chamber folk? One enjoyable example is Bonnie Rideout's "Miss Gordon of Park/ Craigellachie Lassies/The Honourable Mrs. Drummond of Perth's Delight." A lead fiddle, backed by light accompaniment, weaves a series of instrumental pieces together seamlessly. The small ensemble delivers these instrumentals so gently, pleasantly, that it would be quite easy to imagine these selections slipped between two classical quartets during an evening concert. Many other artists follow a similar route on Celtic Tapestry. The majority of the selections are instrumental, interspersed with a handful of vocals including Ceoltoiri's "Killarney Boyus of Pleasure/Oro 'Se Do" and Amy White's "Lagan Love." The operative word, whether speaking of the Celtic style or the 32 selections on these discs, is "tapestry," because the beauty of the collection is built upon the careful arrangements of individual songs and instrumentals as well as the way everything ebbs and flows together. While Karen Ashbrook's "Curlew/Green Hills of Tyrol" is distinctive from Robin Bullock's "The Rakes of Clonmel/The Trip to the Cottage," it also serves to prepare the way for it. Placing both of Celtic Tapestry's discs in the player, then, is a lot like listening to a relaxing, two-hour radio show without commercials. For listeners who enjoy the lighter side of Celtic music, Celtic Tapestry is an agreeable, well-assembled collection.
