To any of you out there in the U.K or across the water....this is good wholesome Celtic styled music from some really talented musicians....don't be put off by what some guest says.
I have all three of the C/Ds and they play whenever I drive my car, which is often. I whole heartedly recommend "Cara" to you.
Best wishes, Mike.

Did I really use the word "illustrious" twice in my post above? That was remiss of me. Change the second "illustrious" to "whelktastic" and accept my humble apologies for not being inventive enough wiith my language.

Beware the Oakley web site, he has all sorts of strange detrious lurking in it's depths, it is a foul, rank, malodorous place to visit, he also keeps vampire ferrets there
He spins it out from worn out violin strings separated into fine strands and placed across lonely streets to catch the remaining virgins that linger by the south banks of the humber




although he is going a bit short recently, due to a remarkable lack of such creatures

Fibulamatic, hello. Your illustrious appearance in this lovely thread is welcomed. Our illustrious web bloke is adding the CD to the site www.carasmusic.com in the next couple of days (plus or minus the time actually taken). The CD is a tenner - if you simply cannot wait to have an hour of us blaring away illustriously, pm me and I'll pop one in the post. It does, however have a picture of me on it.

I am listening to Long Forgotten now. Its a beautiful piece of music, just like the other two, brilliant.

One More Day - was done so well, it made me hear it in a completely new way, as a love song, instead of as a bawdy bar song.

thanks Oaklet, your violin is music to my ears..

Cara " Long Forgotten"


        What a wonderful and waited for event . I have my copy of this great new CD from Oakley John and Mike .
        The first thing one always notices with these three is how sensitive they are to each others playing . The musical interaction is just stellar . The second thing as someone who loves the studio I would love to know what mikes they used on John's guitar and Oakley's fiddle. I remember David's tone was something very special in person but he and John are miked very very well on this CD .
        1) The Faerie Queen: opens this project with a vulnerability and quiet pleasure that grabs you right from the start . Again the mikeing on John's guitar just pulls the listener right in . Mike's whistle shows a hope and sets up the tune for Oakley's response . Just beautiful !!
        2) John Davidson's :shows these three as true northerners . I love the transition from jig to hornpipe (on the edge of being a rant ) . Just great
        3) One more Day : Mike gives this song a "manly vulnerability" and is supported by a great fiddle part with fiddle harmony !! This must be a real favorite for everyone to add harmonies to in live performance .
        4)Moran's Return : You can just tell how much Mike enjoys playing the Ullian pipes on this traditional tune. I love John and Oakley's additions . Each turn there is something new .
        5) So now Im going to Wales : This is classic Cara
, Fiddle whistle and guitar all intertwined in the best way. As a guitar player I am really interested in how John holds this together like glue !
        6) Janey's Jigs :The Yellow Fiddle opens this set and the combination of the fiddles is just inspiring . Adding guitar (and is it mandolin??) as the second tune opens . gives layering . Wonderful ..
        7) Ar Eirinn :The depth to this recording is very exciting . The combination of these three is just amazing on a simple tune. Doing something simple and well is the sign of great musicianship .
        8)The Distant Hills :Well this is just to good . I have to stop the cd to write about this one . As I said above simple art is the hardest to do well and Mr. Oakley is just growing with leaps and bounds . For myself I see the Yorkshire Dales . Thanks Dave !!
        9) The Mason's Apron : A great collaboration . I love this tune . I want to add spoons on the second half. Im shore that happens when you play out !
        10) John's Floating Angst and Paul's Long Farewell : are very different tunes from Mikes musical voice . The set opens as if on a spring day going out for a scenic walk and then opens out into a longer panoramic view . These are amazing tunes . They would do very well for a cinematic sound track .
        11) Bootmans Umbrella : I wish I could find a tune as good at a photo session !! Ahh that guitar mike with Fiddle and pipes . Very round production value .
        12) The North Wall : I hear the audience singing along . Great singing and guitar with very heartening fiddle additions .        
        13) The Centenary /Bonaparte Crossing the Rhine : The Mikeing on the whistle and guitar and fiddle is just wonderful here . These tunes are very popular on this side of the pond so happy to hear them in Cara style .
        14)The Company of Bricklayers : Great guitar !! Great tune !!! Rye Cooder would love this tune.
        15) Great Uncles Warning / Joys March /Funky Maggie :Lots of fun here . Nice and light for getting ready to say " Good By"
        16) Long Forgotten :This is a perfect good by !! Best of singing and instrumental power . You can hear this took a long time to come together . Very strong boys .
        
        I cant thank you all enough for such powerful music . I know this is going to get a following all over Briton and hopefully over here in the Americas as well . We are all going to see a lot more from these three friends who hear each other in such a personal way .
                All the best , Guy Wolff
