This album brings together wide-ranging musical influences from the Irish tradition and beyond in 45 minutes of full-blooded fiddle music.
Diamond’s unique and distinctive fiddle style is revealed on this recording: built on a wide range of influences, from Dublin fiddlers Tommie Potts and Seán Keane, his parents’ music and the fiddle tradition of Co. Donegal, to American old-time and Nordic folk.
