Frith, Fred / Stevie Wishart / Carla Kihlstedt - The Compass, Log, and Lead CD

SKU 34-Intakt 103
Fred Frith: acoustic guitar, lowry organ, violin / Carla Kihlstedt: violin, nyckelharpa / Stevie Wishart: hurdy-gurdy, electronics, violin

"The CD The Compass, Log and Lead is a feast of string instruments: Fred Frith paints wonderful colors on his acoustic guitar, Carla Kihlstedt (USA) plays violin and the nyckelharpa, a Swedish folk instrument, and Steve Wishart (Australia) has turned the hurdy-gurdy into a modern instrument. For one of Fred Frith’s strengths has always been to tie together unbelievably beautiful folk harmonies with free improvisation, something already heard in his band Skeleton Crew or in the soundtrack to the film Step Across the Border. This is also a strength of this trio."
