Footstompin review of Anna-Wendy Stevenson
Item posted: Wednesday 1st February , 2006
BEAUTIFUL FIDDLING!! Anna-Wendy Stevenson - This is a lovely CD featuring Scots
fiddler Anna-Wendy Stevenson with piano accompaniment from James Ross. Much of
the material is traditional but there are also some notable self-penned
compositions - for example Midsummer Star a tender tune written for her father.
With her gorgeous tone, execution and feeling for the music she brings a wealth
of understanding to the old tunes as, for example in her touchingly beautiful
version of the after Culloden tune, Hard Is My Fate.
