STORM IN A TEAPOT - Celtic Fiddle Festival
The latest Celtic Fiddle Festival CD, “Storm in a Teapot”, features a new fiddler in the group, Charlie McKerron, the wonderful musician from Capercaillie, one of Scotland’s most renowned and revered bands. The CD showcases some Galician pieces as well as tunes from Brittany and Ireland and also highlights the Scottish music that Charlie’s inclusion has brought to the band. Many will remember that the Celtic Fiddle Festival’s original line-up featured another much loved Scot, the irrepressible Johnny Cunningham.
Johnny’s passing was a painfully sad blow to the band but, more than a decade later, the group are delighted to revisit the vast treasure trove of Scottish music that used to be such an integral part of the Celtic Fiddle Festival’s repertoire.
With the always engaging guitar accompaniment of Nicolas Quemener, “Storm in a Teapot” is a collection of traditional and contemporary music ranging from light hearted, vigorous dance tunes to heartachingly soulful airs – another milestone in the long history of The Celtic Fiddle Festival which spans more than two decades of inspired and inspiring fiddle music.
