Album Notes
“The new face of Scottish fiddling in the USA" (The Living Tradition), Katie McNally has made waves in both the American traditional music scene and abroad since the release of her debut album, Flourish, in 2013. Based in Boston, her latest project synthesizes her elegant and powerful fiddle playing with the talents of genre-crossing pianist Neil Pearlman and bluegrass phenom Shauncey Ali on viola.

The trio's brand-new album The Boston States reinvigorates and reimagines the historic musical connection between Maritime Canada and New England. Under the guidance of producer Wendy MacIsaac (Beolach, Mary Jane Lamond), McNally has curated a collection of tunes that will draw inspiration from mid-century recordings of Cape Breton fiddlers both in Nova Scotia and Massachusetts and be sculpted by the creative energy of the modern Boston acoustic music scene. Recorded at Lakewind Sound Studios earlier this year, the album is slated for release in October 2016.

Nimble keyboard work, achingly lush string harmonies, and driving dance tunes define the unmistakable sound of the Katie McNally Trio. For more information, dates, and contact information, visit www.katiemcnally.com.
