MacMaster's talent is undeniable -- the woman knows her way around a fiddle, and she's not afraid to shuck off traditional trappings in favor of rock 'n' roll backing. Witness guest stars like former Doobie Brother Michael McDonald, who re-animates the sappy "Danny Boy" with his unusual reading. But in her relentless pursuit of the next note, MacMaster never seems to let her fiddle breathe: as exciting as it is, the lack of musical space forces the notes to blur and swarm together, which ultimately lessens their impact.
