Anna-Wendy Stevenson and 'My Edinburgh'

Album review:

First performed as a Celtic Connections' New Voices commission, this composition lovingly celebrates the history of Stevenson's home town, painted by an enlarged string section with reeds, frets, piano and percussion.

Some colourful characters from Sandy Bell's, Auld Reekie's world-famous traditional music pub, add occasional spoken-voice narrative - and the tracks are also included without voices.

This is a rich, seriously wrought, contemporary composition, albeit rooted in the joy of traditional form, beautifully performed by the cream of Scottish instrumentalists.
