The Gathering [Caroline]

The Gathering [Caroline]



The surge in popularity of Celtic music at the end of the '90s produced just as many people churning out watered-down, commercialized versions of the sound as there were attempting to preserve the genre's rich traditions. Fortunately, this delightful compilation of live performances from the Eigse na Laoi traditional music festival in Cork, Ireland, contains none of the former and lots of the latter. Whether it's the harmonized fiddles on "Lay Dee at De Spence's Reel," the haunting Scottish smallpipes of "Mrs. Hamilton of Pitcaithland," or the flight-of-the-bumblebee-like flute melodies of "The Sandymount," this album sets a spirited Celtic mood.
