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.
