New Release On Green Linnet:
Top-selling Green Linnet artist Celtic Fiddle Festival - "Play On" on this fourth release.
After the unexpected passing of co-founder Johnny Cunningham in Dec. 2003, fiddlers
Kevin Burke and Christian LeMâitre, along with guitarist Ged Foley, were left with an
unimaginable hole to fill in their hearts and in their lineup. In stepped French-Canadian fiddler
André Brunet (of La Bottine Souriante), whose talent and enthusiasm infused the group
with an energy that shines in this live recording.
The music was recorded during three shows at The Hollywood Theater and Artichoke Music in Portland, Oregon in 2004.
You’ll find twelve tracks showcasing the range of music that this diverse group brings to traditional music.
"Once the tour got under way it became quickly evident that inviting Andre along was an inspired decision.
There was great excitement in the music, we enjoyed each others playing immensely and it was evident
from the audience response that they too felt they were witnessing something special.
We miss our dear friend Johnny Cunningham terribly but we'd like to think he's still out there somewhere,
grinning down on us, wishing us well and exhorting us to Play On". - Kevin Burke

Many musical artists and groups are active in their communities. Some perform before faithful fans on a regular schedule each week or weekend. They are independent musicians as compared to those music industry big names. We often think of the big name groups because we are exposed to the marketing blitz. I have had the opportunity to hear a number of independent performers with Capital Celtic. Some are just starting out and are perhaps a little rough around the edges and some are so outstanding I wonder why they have not entered into the "Big Time" music industry. Perhaps you have experienced the same? Perhaps you know of a new artist or group that you believe has talent that would be enjoyed by others? If so send me a CD and Bio and we will feature them on The Capital Celtic Network. - EEHealy
