Old Blind Dogs

February 21, 2006

The Old Blind Dogs CD is something that has been listened to regularly for about a year now. My friend Kari gave it to me as a birthday gift because they were going to be playing live in Flagstaff. There concert was amazing and I have been listening to the CD ever since. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see there fiddler. They wouldn’t let him into the country due to a dog eared passport. Makes sense for the “Old Blind Dogs” though, doesn’t it?

    I like them too. I have that one and their Fit album. I particularly like color of their fiddle + bouzouki sound.

    Since we seem to have similar taste is Celtic music, do you have any other recommendations? I actually have a gift certificate to Borders that I’m waiting to use. I’m always looking for good fiddlers. I’m hoping if I listen to enough I can start picking up style things for my own playing.

    I couldn’t resist this because I was just helping a couple do something similar on Friday. I don’t usually buy music there and the selection is, well, the child of marketing.

    In the end they walked out with Liz Carroll’s Lost in the Loop, Alasdair Fraser and Tony McManus in Return to Kintail, and Natalie MacMaster’s Live album. (They bought a Kate Rusby album too, but that doesn’t count as fiddle music.) I hope I did a good job.

    I’m Astrid’s friend and musical colleague. I don’t knit or play fiddle, but that could always change.

    Thanks for the recommendations Gray. I’m going to have to check some of those out. I recently got the Alasdair Fraser/Natailie Haas CD at thier concert. The concert was great, I’ve I really enjoyed listening to the CD. It’s always hard to find a store with a really good selection. Plus I think there is so much junk out there that it can be intimidating for someone who is interested, but not sure where to start.

    It’s fine that your not a fiddler or knitter. I’m glad to have anyone comment on my blog. Thank you so much for the recommendations.
