Yella Hoose is a lovely album by fiddle player John McCusker featuring ten instrumentals and one vocal by Kate Rusby. This is a traditionally based recording, with McCusker's fiddle supported by an ensemble of guitar, diatonic accordion, and bass with guests on whistles, cello, and mandolin. The arrangements are spare, giving the recording a spacious, open feel, and the fidelity is outstanding.
This is a relaxed album of deftly played traditional Celtic music. Even all-star guests like Tim O'Brien only serve to contribute to the whole of this project. Yella Hoose is a gratifying addition to McCusker's catalog. - Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr.
