No More WingsNo More Wings Ref: A0537
The Rachel Hair Trio
On her previous album, the songs were in Gaelic. Now they are in English and Butterworth's delivery coupled with her driving guitar style suggests a more mainstream popular approach. What shines through as ever is Hair's sparkling and brilliant harp playing. There are some wonderful instrumental sets. A couple of Swedish tunes romp along joyfully, with Fraser Fifield on soprano sax moving everything up a notch." Taplas, Delyth Jenkins
