 O’er the Moor, Among the Heather
Fiddling Around the Musical Landscape of Scotland, Ireland and Beyond

This instrumental CD captures the musical imagery of the Celtic countryside. Deby’s award-winning, beautiful airs evoke the senses: the smell of damp peat below one’s feet, the soft tickle of summer rainfall on a chilled cheek, or the vision of rich grassy colors of the vast green moorlands. Deby’s fiery fiddling is a joyous celebration of life like the gaiety of laughter with family in a crowded kitchen or dancing strathspeys and reels with friends in a full Ceilidh hall. A fiddler’s tune is remembrance; it’s an emotional souvenir of time.
Deby’s music breathes life into afar-distant 18th century melodies. The fiddle weds well with an assortment of other instruments she orchestrated on this CD.
Her arrangements vary from solo fiddle, to a duo with guitar, or a trio with harp and whistle, or expands to a vast array of string bass, cello, congas, oboe, Scottish cauldwind pipes, and more. All the musicians are stellar! This CD will capture your heart and dance your feet.
