Caledonian Muse Caledonian Muse by Terpsichore - $15
Terpsichore's long-awaited second album of Scottish Country Dance music features some favorite dances married to beautifully crafted medleys to create a feast for the ears as well as the feet. You don't have to be a dancer to enjoy the happy exuberance of "Luckenbooth Brooch" or the seamless interweaving of fiddle, cello, and piano in "Bedrule." The slowly developing power of "Monymusk" rewards the patient listener with an intense experience of strathspey, the heart and soul of Scottish music. A waltz of irrepressible brightness from the pen of Liz Donaldson shines in the middle. The well-known classic "The Duke of Perth" is revisited with a surprising, fresh approach, backed by authoritative scholarly research. Jigs by two of Scotland's best fiddle composers, Marshall and Mackintosh, are transported in Terpsichore's hands far beyond mere good fun to reach sublime heights. Inspired improvisations on a set of Mackintosh strathspeys make it clear why Terpsichore is justly famed for sizzling hot strathspeys.
Elke Baker, fiddle; Liz Donaldson, piano; Ralph Gordon, bass and cello
Glenelg GlenElg by Elke Baker - $15
Impressive for its rhythmic energy and deep emotion, this exquisitely crafted recording explores theme and variation in Scottish music, from the Early Music sound of "Old Age and Young" to the irresistible step-dancing rhythms of Cape Breton. Strathspey medleys build to fever pitch, explode into reel time, and continue to build. Highlands, Islands, and Lowlands are evoked with the haunting oceanic "Rowing from Isla to Uist" and fiery variations on "Katherine Oggie." Every variation, every phrase, and every birl of "Crossing the Minch" has something new to say. Includes the inspiringly beautiful "Thug mi gaol do'n ghille ruadh (I fell in love with a red-haired lad)." Produced by Grammy winner Cathy Fink.

On the Map On the Map by Tasker's Chance - $15
Tasker's Chance's members, each from a different musical background, have combined their musical strengths with a shared interest in history to develop entertaining and informative programs of the popular music of early America.
Music has always been a part of daily life, but it was also used to transmit history and even shape it. Great men and events were celebrated in song. Music was used to protest the oppressive English tax laws that led to the American Revolution. Other music was used to ease the burden of work on land or at sea. Love and loss found expression in ballads that still speak to us. Dancing was an important form of social interaction. At times the only way a young couple could touch or exchange a few private words was under the watchful gaze of a chaperone.
Deborah Brower, lead vocals, guitar and bodhran; Elaine Newhall, flute and pennywhistle; and Becky Ross, fiddle and harmony vocals
