  • Credits

    Though John McCusker made one album with the band Parcel of Rogues before joining the Battlefield Band, he is certainly best known for his work with that group. His first solo album is a major departure for him, in that he plays alone or with only minimal accompaniment. This makes it naturally a more quiet and meditative album than the full-band work he is best known for, though sparks do fly on some of the fast numbers. McCusker wrote more than half of the tunes here, and his compositional gifts are formidable. This album is required listening for Battlefield Band fans, both to hear one of the stars of that group in a new setting and to hear alternate versions of band favorites. It is also highly recommended to anyone who enjoys Celtic fiddle music and wants to hear a master of expressive playing. ~ Richard Foss
