ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MAGE RECORDS & the CELTIC MP3s MUSIC MAGAZINE PRESENTS:

"Bow Triplets" or bowed triplets is the expression for one of the most frequent ornamentations used by Irish fiddlers to add that special and traditional groove and excitement that we know and love with Celtic music. Three very short and fast bow strokes are played instead of one note.

Bow Triplets is also the name of this musical group. The size of the group "Bow Triplets" varies with the theme and type of musical project or performance, from two -up to five musicians total. And instead of playing merely the well known groovy side of the Irish music, the musical friends who form "Bow Triplets" are always aiming at presenting all aspects of Celtic music. Ancient laments are mixed with contemporary compositions, rhythmic instrumental jigs, reels and hornpipes with melancholic magic. The Irish-Celtic music is the cradle of American bluegrass, New Zealand gold mining ballades... yes even Scandinavian folkmusic cannot deny its Celtic root influence.

Manifold instrumentations, exciting arrangements and much fun while playing music together is what contributes to giving the listening audience that infectious and profoundly intimate concert experience that they would expect from the Bow Triplets.

one spot on heart
e\' bellissimo! Musiche straordinarie, con assoli di violino che tolgono il fiato, mettono i brividi e fanno venire le lacrime agli occhi tanto raggiungono le corde più commoventi dell\'anima. Complimenti!

Overall good

One of those rare albums that come along once in a while...
This is one of those rare albums that come along once in a while. From an Irish band who's members are from Germany and Sweden In goes the CD up goes the volume and then comes the shock. Bow Triplets are an Irish band, my ears tell me. Yes these guys really know their stuff. The jigs and reels on this album are absolutely superb and the musical skills are outstanding to say the least. "Not the First Time", a ballad written by Stef Sigfalk is the story of young girl leaving home and how her father greaves for the loss of his daughter and hopes that she will touch peoples hearts in her travels, as she did when at home. This is a masterpiece of Irish song writing and Stefs great voice is well suited to Irish Ballad singing. I am sure this song will be taken up and sung by other great Irish bands and artists. "Here's a Great Night", is a great catchy sing along that's all about having a good night out which only the Irish know how to do the best. This number will have you singing and tapping your feet before the track ends. "Never To Early". Written by Stef and Heidi, a story of life's struggles when in love, all the ups and downs and learning how to cope when thing don't always go your way, sung by Heidi who has the voice of an angel, with an absolutely suburb back line which makes this beautiful ballad something special, and the title track of the album. But for me the best track on the album is "If Your Home Before Me", this is one of the greatest ballads I have ever encountered in my search for great Irish ballads. It has all the love and hope of a people that have endured life's struggle to keep their home a proud and wonderful land. I say thank you Heidi, Stef and Bow Triplets for giving us such an insight into how the Irish have brought their love of music and song to all the nations of the world. Bow Triplets are, Heidi Sigfalk, Vocals/violin/guitar /spoons. Stef Sigfalk, Vocals/guitars/banjo/mandolin/concertina/bodhran. Joe Eisenburger, Vocals/acoustic bass. Markus Meier, wood winds/recorders To finalize all 17 tracks of this album are outstanding and a credit to Irish music this is Irish music at its very best, played and sung by superb singers and musicians though not Irish thy can and should be proud to call themselves a traditional Irish Band. This is an album that should be part of every Irish music lover's collection.

Another of Switzerland's claim to fame...
Besides time pieces, fondue and the Alps, another of Switzerland's claims to fame may surprisingly soon enough be Celtic music. Nope, you didn't read that wrong. That is, if the Basadingen, Switzerland-based Heidi, Stef and The Bow Triplets continue producing music such as this on their second release.

There may not be a Sean, an Eoin, a Donal or an Aoife to be found here but nine instrumentals and seven songs later, the listener is provided with a very pleasing collection of music that matches up to any of the offerings from Ireland-based bands.

The first cut, "Big John McNeal," is an attention-grabber from the first lively note. The best instrumentals bring a picture to mind and this one transports the listener to a lively dancing session, whether it be a ceili in Miltown Malbay or a square dance in Fort Worth.

"The Dance of The Honeybee" also works in this way. It leads one to easily imagine a bee flitting from flower to flower.

The meaning and feeling of the title cut, the healing "One Spot on Earth" is aided immensely by the fitting harp backing.

"Meghan & Robin" is a new but traditional-sounding song with a sad but ultimately sweet conclusion while "The Tinkerman's Daughter" proves once again that you can't buy love like livestock at an auction.

The intriguing biblical-based song "The Lord of The Dance" shifts to a faster, catchier rhythm halfway through and then darts into an even livelier closing reel titled "The Dance of The Lord." No, there is nary a mention of Michael Flatley.

"Captain, My Captain" is an admonition to live life to its fullest:

"...Be mindful and present, enjoy every trip, day by day
We'll all once sail another ship, oceans away
One day the tightest knot will slip, good wind
Captain, my captain on your new and distant ship..."
The catchy concertina and bodhran-based "The Boys from Blue Hill" evolves into "Cherish The Ladies," with banjo and guitar joining the fray.
Jaunty harp playing fronts "Walsh's Hornpipe," melding into the violin-led "The Peacock's Feather."

"Miramis" closes the release, a soothing, wistful-sounding offering featuring cello, viola, guitar and bells.

The playing here is extremely crisp and clean but this will not be a release for those seeking frenetically fast reels and jigs. The instrumentals are an appealing mix of rhythms and are standout offerings commanding attention. It's hard to imagine anyone with a taste for the Celtic not enjoying most, if not all, of this release.

Rare Celtic Gem from Switzerland
When you think of Celtic music, Switzerland is not the first place you think about. But those Swiss Celts know the music inside and outside. This is a brilliant album for anyone interested in upbeat traditional Irish music.

John Willmott, Editor Celtic Ways and Tours of Ancient Ireland,

The album that would always keep me alive with hope.
Their album is a tapestry of my life and music that inspires my future. It's the one album that would always keep me alive with hope.

Debbie Simpson

Music was excellent, true to celtic tradition with a different flavor, and inspi
LOVE the CD! My sweetie is a fiddler of the celtic/Irish/eclectic sort and also thought the music was excellent. I am learning flute and concertina and found many tunes inspiring.
