Ashley MacIsaac – The Devil In The Kitchen

Posted on Updated on

I became aware of the Canadian violin renegade Ashley MacIsaac during a trip to Scotland (the same time/place I first heard Loreena McKennitt). I’ve known & sung Celtic music since my Dad familiarized me with the Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem as a lad, but after my life shift into the punk rock scene I had resigned myself to keeping these and other divergent musical traditions together by force of interest alone. When I heard Ashley MacIsaac’s music in a long-forgotten Edinburgh record shop I felt like Drs. Spengler & Venkman, recrossing two powerful streams of my musical nascence.
