First Listen : David Doocey / Changing Time

David Doocey continues what is looking like a great year for fiddle albums with his debut Changing Time.  Its another album of stripped bare fiddle music and we have just had our first listen. Its a well paced album where he allows the tunes and his rock steady style to take center stage. Impressive stuff and if you want to hear a sample we have just added a track to our Soundcloud file and included it below. We will get to a more detailed review shortly.  David was born in Worcester, Massachusetts and is now living in Foxford, County Mayo. The album is predominately fiddle with guitar accompaniment and comprises of 12 tracks of both traditional tunes and newly composed music.  Great accompaniment on many of the tracks with piano, bass and flute adding to its overall appeal.  Accompaniment given by the talents of Patrick Doocey, Kevin Doocey, Stephen Doherty, Kevin Doherty and Ryan Molloy.

According to his bio he "has won several awards including All-Ireland medals on both fiddle and concertina and the first ever World Fleadh fiddle championship in 2005. He has also achieved success in the much coveted Feile Oriel trophy, an award previously held by Tommy Peoples. He is featured on many recordings and has recorded in Nashville with Grammy award winners Tim O’Brien and Allison Brown on Gráda’s ‘Natural Angle’ which was named in NPR’s top ten folk albums of 2010."
