Traditional Irish Music
Each week we monitor our Soundcloud file to see which track gets the most plays. This weeks most played track is from Life is all Checkered, the new duet album by Nathan Gourley and Laura Feddersen. It has received 180 plays over 7 days. It shows that new life exists within many an old tune. Nathan and Laura through years of playing together and some inspired arrangements have found some new avenues of musical expression that underpin the recording. The use of complementary drones and chordal harmonies overcome any issue of one fiddle cancelling the other. In addition the rich sound that they have extracted from the fiddles in the recording process gives it an extra layer of texture, setting everything at a perfect earthly timbre that matches the mood of the music.
