ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
John Knowles: fiddle, octave mandolin, guitar
Sharon Knowles: Camac Aziliz Celtic Harp
Karin Loya: bass fiddle (cello)
Linda Rice-Johnston: vocals

This is a fine recording which blends fiddle, harp, cello, voice and other instruments in a thoughtful and evocative way. Never rushed, and performed with sensitivity and grace. Fynesound lives up to its name in this beautiful recording which transports the listener to 18th century
Scotland. A pleasant change from the usual frantic playing offered by so many modern "Celtic" bands.

William Jackson, July 2005

"The wonderful musicians who are known as Fynesound have put together a stunning début album of tunes and songs -- mostly Scottish, some Irish, and a few originals in the traditional vein -- which displays a knowledge of and enthusiasm for the music. Add to that the members' individual and collective virtuosity and you are Almost Home. This a recording of rare maturity, grace, passion, depth, and integrity, and I salute and congratulate Fynesound for a lasting achievement which I know will bring as much pleasure with the tenth listening as with the first."

Myron Bretholz, July 2005.

Graceful musicality in all selections by fine artists
These are obviously mature artists, playing true to the culture of the music. The instrumental blend is sensistive and delicious. I raise a pint to the lot!
