Strictly Scottish – Corryvrechan live in concert

Corryvrechan in Bath have been presenting evenings of Scottish dance and music over many years, and recently released a recording of the 2011 performances. For anyone who attended one of these evenings, I am sure it would make an excellent memento of the evening. Many of the sets of dance music are medleys or specific arrangements, including music for dancing on and off in some cases, and made specifically for the dances performed, which for the most part are not identified, so they can’t really be considered generally useful as dancing tracks.
Instead you can sit back and enjoy excellent entertainment, along the lines of listening to a ceilidh, with a mixture of dance music, piping, singing and recitation. The musicians comprise Corryvrechan members and friends, excellent musicians from all over the country. They combine to create a well-knit band sound, with all parts audible, though some may miss having a drum. Several get solo spots, including Chris Oxtoby and Ann Stonehouse, leader and fiddler respectively of the Strathallan Band. I particularly enjoyed Chris’ innovative arrangement of Shetland tunes, finishing with the classic Calgary Fiddlers’ Welcome to Shetland and Ann’s playing of Marie Fielding tunes, both accompanied by Martin Cairns. Elsewhere, George Maybury’s pipes come across particularly well, with the band backing, and I also enjoyed Andrew Telford’s baritone. Altogether a great evening!
