Album Notes
Obsidian Rain is Andi Pitcher and Kristin Washburn, fast friends who toured the world making music and created their own unique arrangements of traditional Celtic tunes as well as original improvisational compositions.

Fans of the Celtic family band FiddleSticks will recognize echoes of Obsidian Rain in later FiddleSticks recordings. Andi Pitcher started recording with FiddleSticks in 1998, and married into the FiddleSticks family in 2001. Andi contributed both tunes and style to the FiddleSticks family. You can hear her dulcimer on several tracks on FiddleSticks' albums "Playing Favorites," "Time and Again," and "Return to Nauvoo." Kristin's fiddle is also featured on the tune "St Basil's Hymn" on the "Return to Nauvoo" album.

This is a magical album. I first recieved a copy from Kristin herself when I caught a ride with her and a friend from Utah to California a number of years ago. Cooly's Reel was done masterfully and is one of the most powerful pieces of music I've heard. The vocal intro to Rain is so enchanting it's like listening to the feeling of a perfect kiss. Andi's dulcimer really gives the music that authentic and age-old celtic feel. When I get rich I'm going to buy every copy of Obsidian Rain I can and just give them to everyone I know so they can experience it's greatness.
