Out on the Edge (Chris Dawson & Keltiac)

The long awaited official international release of the album 'Out on the Edge' from Chris Dawson and his band KELTIAC. The band's melodic sound is based around traditional flutes, celtic harps and the uilleann pipes, playing principally the compositions and well crafted, expressive arrangements (for all instruments) of Chris Dawson. A number of compositions on the album are inspired by an ancient historical site called 'the Edge', at Alderley Edge in the north west of Britain where some of the tunes and ideas were composed, hence the title of the album ! The tracks range from a traditional acoustic sound, to mysterious ambient pieces inspired by local legends, to big dynamic arrangements with many other instruments including mandolin, bouzouki, bass, drums, didgeridoo, bodhran, electric guitar, bombarde, biniou kozh, etc. Some major folk artists also feature on the album, giving credit to Chris's music, including Dan Ar Braz, Michael McGoldrick (Capercaillie), Sylvain Barou (Guidewires), Annie Ebrel, Alain Genty (Barzaz, Gwerz). The CD is nicely presented in 'digipack' format including booklet with all track details and information. Folk ROOTS magazine: "Quality Celtic crossover folk/rock/jazz" "some sterling results !"
