The Making of "Fiddlers Three"
Late in a very chilly January and into early February of
2007, the Forget-Me-Nots gathered together for three
successive Saturdays, first to practice, and then to record,
at the Apple Barn here in the mountains in Valle Crucis, NC.
It's been three years since the Forget-Me-Nots recorded
music for a CD. Now at the ripe old ages of 10, 11, and 12
the girls have a noteworthy achievement to their credit: 69
minutes of spirited and heartfelt traditional Celtic and
contemporary fiddle music on 22 tracks. The Apple Barn is a
wonderful setting for acoustic music. Sound resonates off
the wood interior, providing a rich natural reverb. The
ambience harkens back to simpler times when a few fiddles
and a guitar may have been the only source of entertainment
after a day's work in the woods or fields -- it definitely
puts you in the mood for making good music. Well, a barn
with a heater is still a pretty chilly place to play when
the temperatures outside are well below freezing, but the
girls seemed to generate their own heat on the fiddle (and
intermittent games of tag) and have put together a very fine
CD! It has the freshness of a live recording with very
little studio tweaking, and all but a few of the tunes were
done in a single take. If you enjoy the fiddle, we know you
will enjoy this CD by some of the finest young musicians to
grace the hills of North Carolina.
The CD is $15.00, plus shipping.
