HIGHLAND WAY ~ Are You Feeling It Yet!
First, I have to say that seeing Highland Way in person is a definite plus…not just because Brian wears a kilt and all the ladies would love to see him twirl around in oh such a special way…but every single band member is very friendly and actually takes time to talk to all fans wanting that very special hug or an autographed CD, like I did. Brian’s vocals are awesome…LOVE hearing him sing…love the way he hits those high notes.
Ned ….great clear voice….his mandolin playing takes you to another dimension….all vocals totally compliment the other; these guys are all very talented…I’ll never pass on a chance to see them again for a lot of reasons……the drummer is fantastic, fun and personable.
Love hearing Brian’s Scottish Brogue…adds a LOT authenticity to his songs; every single band member plays VERY well…love the whistles, Paul on the violin totally rocks…he’s really quite good; didn’t get a chance to talk to him in person, my fault, rocking mandolin…chilling, awesome guitar….music is all extremely well played.
“Caledonia” whether I’m listening to this CD or seeing them in person, I can’t get enough…touching, gentle and great vocals, absolutely my favorite version of this son; and believe me I’ve heard a LOT of version; also my favorite track, great that it starts with this being their first track.
Lonesome Boatman – OMG…beautiful, haunting, mesmerizing….WOW Loved it; pretty much ties with Caledonia; both I’d never tire of hearing OVER and OVER and OVER.
Coolie’s Set is awesome…I can see this in a movie soundtrack and certainly hope the right people are reading and listening…cause its that good…just as good or better then anything I’ve heard used in a movie before….well done guys….
Glencoe; great song, wonderful touching vocals, violin absolutely beautiful; Drunken Sailor, Danny Boy, The Calton Weaver, Back Home In Derry; to name a few; I’ve heard all of these from other groups; Highland Way does a brilliant job on them all.
Wild Rover – great fun song…I can imagine they had a lot of fun recording and playing this….can totally see the audience participation; a drinking song…the ending must be hilarious.
I have to say that EVERY track was great listening, ALL great vocals and the music at its very best; I would strongly recommend this to everyone….great addition at your music library. By the time this CD has finished; “you’ll definitely be feeling it.”
