To my ears Natalie is at home with the material, but the host of EXCELLENT musicians she has chosen don't quite fit in the celtic realm. These are all great players but the bluegrass soul and the celtic soul are two different worlds. It's obvious to me that the musicians on these tracks don't spend alot of time with jigs and reels. Bluegrass and celtic musics may be related and have similarities but they are two different genres. 99% of bluegrass music comes out of the 1940's and 50's... Scottish and Irish music can date back centuries... maybe that's why Natalie chose to do more modern material here. Definitely buy it, but its a combo that doesn't jive for this Natalie fan.

Forgive the high price, and notice the diversity of leading professional musicians, who must be borrowed from their owners on contract. Here, you're paying royalties over and again, but you're getting a combination of the best artists in North America doing original music. It's actually worth so much more. Please don't copy it, tape it, or pass it around too liberally. Let your friends listen on your own equipment; then persuade them to buy it when ever they can. Plus, Natalie signed the disc itself, and the liner is also simply beautiful. (Not like one of those "Pop Classical" CD's where you get a 39 page dissertation in 5 languages.) I am a minimalist. I keep only two or three albums with me, and this is one.

Natalie is no doubt about it, the best human musician alive! This album proves it - It seems to be impossible, but for God's help, it would be.
