This outstanding disc is an excellent introduction to this wonderful genre. Feidman's sensitive playing makes these tunes by turns melancholy and ecstatic. The simple, clear production serves the music well. This is the purest of folk musics; that is, music of the people with a universal appeal. ~ Tim Sheridan
