Steelhead in the Riffles
$26 + s/h
Robin Flower & Libby McLaren bring wit, searing virtuosity and warm humanity to Steelhead in the Riffles, their fourth collaboration. The CD offers 24 original tunes and four traditional Irish songs arranged into 12 brilliantly constructed sets, covering a wide range of material. But the bottom line is that these women are having the time of their lives, and it shows. Roaring from delicate to powerhouse and back to pristine, their music is moving, fun and dazzlingly imaginative. The intricate interplay between the piano and bright mandolin is joyful perfection. Their years of playing together have gained them a musical intimacy that is extraordinary. As they anticipate each other"s direction, their playing becomes a brilliant dance of unity and harmony, adding a unique and enriching element of excitement to each piece.
