The Outside Track offers up a lush, hybrid take on Celtic traditions from Scotland, Ireland, and the U.S. These musical and cultural strands come together in a stellar line-up: County Cork’s Teresa Horgan, who plays flute and whistle (and takes on lead vocals); accordion player Fiona Black, who hails from the Scottish Highlands; Ediburgh’s Ailie Robertson, a virtuoso player of the clàrsach (Celtic harp); U.S. National Scottish Fiddle champion Emerald Rae, who brings both nimble Cape Breton –style fiddling and step-dancing to the mix; and Eric MacDonald, on guitar and mandolin. The band’s command of Celtic music, song, and dance provides the foundation for vigorous and engaging contemporary takes on the tradition.
