Recorded live on stage at Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theatre, the Scottish Fiddlers performed with Ireland’s Waterboys to an enthusiastic crowd. Thirty-two years later, the Waterboys are releasing a compilation of their best tracks, including the Scottish Fiddlers’ performance of Carolan’s Welcome, Atholl Highlanders, Medley of My Love Is In America and Mason’s Apron.
The Los Angeles Times reviewed the Scottish Fiddlers’ performance by saying: “By this time, the mixture of folk warmth and rock bite was so unified in his music that it seemed only natural when Scott brought out the nearly two dozen members of the Scottish Fiddlers of Los Angeles group for a jam that offered the warm, communal feel that is such a winning feature of Los Lobos concerts.”
The compilation will be accompanied by a new book. Look for more information in the future.
