This CD is a collaboration between Irish fiddler, Kevin Burke, and guitarist/composer, Cal Scott. For over 30 years, Kevin's been well-known in Irish music both as a soloist and as a member of the Bothy Band, Patrick Street and the Celtic Fiddle Festival. Cal Scott, of Oregon's Trail Band, has played in folk, rock and jazz groups for three decades; recorded and produced over 20 CDs; and composed music for many films including over 30 PBS documentaries. Across the Black River features Johnny B. Connolly (accordion) from Bridgetown, Michael McGoldrick (flutes) from Capercaillie and Phil Baker (bass) from Pink Martini. As well as beautifully crafted interpretations of traditional tunes, Across the Black River includes an air written by Phil Cunningham in remembrance of his brother, Johnny, the famous Scottish fiddler.
