This breathy, twittering album sounds like a country dance taking place on some foreign shore -- which, of course, it is. Thanks to a tip off about Galicia, Spain's Celtic heritage, the Chieftains dive into the region's crazy instruments -- wooden planks, ancient pre-violins! -- and wonderful sounds. "Nao Vas Ao Mar, Tonio," "Dueling Chanters" "El Besu" are all winning.
