‘Patsy has succeeded in creating an attractive fusion of Scottish traditional and classical music where other, more experienced names have been unable to deliver. It doesn’t just ‘bridge the gap’ – it lays down a sparkling tapestry between the two genres.’ Irish World Review
‘This is an astonishingly good CD….her three-movement fiddle concerto is a total triumph….essentially an excellent recording of contemporary Scottish fiddle.
Patsy Reid has done a perfect job of weaving all these strands into one cloth, giving us great width without compromising on quality.’ Alex Monaghan
Well that’s about all for now, thanks for taking the time to read this wee newsletter and please keep in touch and up to date with me via the website.
