Atlantic Seabreeze Neswletter

November 13, 2013

"The CD is a masterpiece" says Atlantic Seabreeze and is just a wonderful CD to listen to. A 5 star rating all the way out of 5 stars. A special note on one of the tracks, entitled, Ye Banks and Ye Braes. It features Matilda Murdoch, a 93 year old fiddler and composer who plays fiddle on this track with Carolyn on piano. The attractive CD jacket includes explanations for each track, why it was included and who is featured on the track along with Carolyn. The CD would be a welcome to anyone’s music library and a joy to listen to. [ Read More ]
