With Silver & All (Foot Stompin' Records -
Hailing from Shetland, Jenna is a young award winning fiddler - and needless
to say is a fabulous talent. (She also plays accordion). She started with
the family band Filska and is also now with the Highland all female band
Dochas and is the newest member of Deaf Shepherd.
On this, her debut solo CD she plays a selection of airs, reels and jigs
and is accompanied by Harris Playfair - piano, Kevin Mackenzie - guitars,
Duncan Lyall - double bass and Paul Jennings - percussion.
Most of the tunes are new to me, but I note among the composers James
Hill, J Scott Skinner, Tom Anderson and Willie Anderson - so high quality
is assured. I have two stand out tracks - the medley 'The Hurricane' and
the tour de force 'Princess Beatrice' - where she really lets rip.
