Traditional Irish Music
The album is called Living Roots and they describe it as a “quest through the much loved heartlands of Irish and Appalachian traditions. Setting out with a Hornpipe and solid reel set, Living Roots is a journey through jigs & reels whose names are steeped in the tradition, from heartfelt slow airs on fiddle and dobro to the imaginative renderings of classic old-time Appalachian fiddle & banjo duets! The album features newly composed material from both Hendry & Toman drawing on traditional & modern tune forms. Harmonically the banjo & fiddle melodies are supported with textured acoustic guitars , bouzouki & dobro lines played by Toman. Guest musicians featured are Alison Crossey on Bodhrán , Rachel Toman on Vocals & Pete Toman on Double bass.
