I Draw Slow
"White Wave Chapel"
Pinecastle Records

There is an interesting moment in a recent interview with Dave Holden, guitarist of the Irish band I Draw Slow, when he notes that in America their music is described as Irish, and in Ireland, it's American.

Darol Anger
"E-and'a"
Adventure Music

Darol Anger is one of the most skilled fiddlers working today. He is interested in taking the instrument into new places, though he's not interested in developing an entirely new vocabulary for the instrument, and I think that's an important distinction.
