Celtic Songlines Feb 9, 2021- An Interview with Rebecca Lomnicky, Fiddler from Scottish Trio "The Fire"

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

This week we feature The Fire's new album "Marigold" and interview band member Rebecca Lomnicky. The Fire is a high energy traditional music band that combines world class performances of blazing Scottish music with a distinctly Californian flare. The group includes our guest today  International Scottish Fiddle Champion Rebecca Lomnicky, dynamic bagpiper and multi-instrumentalist David Brewer, and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland graduate Adam Hendey on guitar, bouzouki, and harmonium. All three band members have lived and studied in Scotland, and work together to further contribute to the traditions of Scottish music in America through performances and tours, as well as workshops funded by agencies such as the National Endowment for the Arts.  New releases from artists are a reminder that despite the difficult year musicians continue to create fine music. 


Having listened to this program twice now, I am planning to listen again soon.  The Fire trio shows off their exceptional musicianship.  There is a great mix of tunes and medleys.  In particular I like the Robert Burns inspired traditional tunes.  

Furthermore, the interview by David Reynolds with Rebecca Lomnicky provides some back stories about the making of this new album, and it made listening to their music even more enjoyable.
