The Boston States (Independent)

Fiddler Katie McNally, joined on The Boston States by viola player Shauncey Ali and keyboard player Neil Perlman, is well-versed in music and fiddle traditions—both from an academic perspective and wide-ranging experience from accompanying Galician bagpiper Carlos Nunez, to cross-genre fiddle supergroup Childsplay. 

This 2016 album, recorded in Cape Breton under the guidance of Wendy MacIsaac, showcases a collection of tunes that range from driving reels to lovely strathspeys and even a dash of classical fiddle. McNally’s mastery of her instrument is obvious and combined with the synergy of the three players creates a very pleasing listening experience.
